Official Opening of Lord Edward Street, Social Housing

We were delighted to welcome the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government Eoghan Murphy to officially open the largest social new-build housing development in the country at Lord Edward Street in Limerick.

As a team we are very proud to deliver this regeneration project which transformed the derelict Limerick Tate Clothing Factory site into a development of 81 new homes.

These new homes have been built on a brownfield site close to Limerick city centre comprising of 57 units for elderly residents (1 and 2 bed apartments and 2-bed houses) with the remainder (24) being family homes (3 bedroom).

The project included the delicate restoration and conservation work to the existing historical clothing factory which been incorporated into the development for use as apartments and a community centre.

Speaking at the opening, Housing Minister Mr Murphy said: “There are many challenges in housing in Ireland but there is also progress on the ground and it is nice to come to an opening like this one at Lord Edward Street and to meet people and families whose lives will be changed for the better by the provision of high quality housing.”
