PHOTOS: O'Devaney Gardens before its last flats are demolished

When finished, the development will house around 480 new homes.

DURING THE WEEK, Dublin City Council passed a motion that will see the final flats at O’Devaney Gardens in Dublin torn down.

The site will be redeveloped into fully State-owned accommodation, with the final demolition taking place in the coming weeks.

Two of the four remaining blocks of flats, which date from the 1950s and are located close to the Phoenix Park, are still occupied.

The demolition of the complex began eight years ago.

When finished, the development will house around 480 new homes. It will serve as a pilot scheme for placing social housing and private rentals on the same site.

Half of the units developed on the site will be used as social housing, while the other half will be rented to those with a demonstrated housing need.

Tenants will then be charged a rent tied to their income – with higher earners paying a higher rent.
