New housing for Shannon

PLANS are being made for a new 50-unit housing development at Tullyvarraga, Shannon. With the property market recovering for some time now, developer John Walsh believes prices are going to increase, making such developments sustainable once again. “I hope to have planning there within 12 months and it should be ripe after that. We would start developing some time in the middle of next year.” He plans to put a total of 50 residential dwellings in place, 10 detached, 24 semi-detached and 16 apartments. While he feels current prices are generally not high enough to justify new building, he feels this will change. He also has an idea of what properties at the Tullyvarraga site should reach when they are eventually built. “There is still probably a bit left in the market for it to reach a sustainable building level. Prices for a three-bed semi at €210,000 or €215,000 would be rock-bottom. That’s the level it would need to be …
