The development’s location

St. Helens III is part of Quintain’s extensive land bank in Lucan and Adamstown. These lands, part of the Adamstown Strategic Development Zone, are spread over 200 acres and hold the potential for 4,800 residential units and 26,000 sq. m of mixed-use retail, schools, community centres, public parks, and sports/play facilities.

The proposed development offers easy access to Tandy’s Lane Park, Adamstown Train Station, and the new vibrant shopping and retail centre at The Crossings.

The St. Helens III scheme also reinforces Quintain’s commitment to sustainability. All phases, from design to construction, were carefully planned to minimize environmental impact and create a more efficient and sustainable development.

3DDB have significantly contributed to the project’s planning approval. We provided Quintain with high-quality architectural computer-generated imagery, expansive aerial photomontages, and accurately verified view montages. These visual tools not only accurately illustrated the design team’s vision but also provided local authorities with a clear understanding of the project’s potential impacts on the surrounding environment.
