Homeless families won't be moved in to the government's family hubs until next month at the earliest.
The hubs are the latest bid to get homeless households out of emergency hotel and B&B accommodation.
A number of premises including an old Bargaintown warehouse are being converted into units, which will see groups of families living together and sharing kitchens and washing facilities.
Others include the former Aisling House in Clontarf, the former Lynam's Hotel on O'Connell Street, Millmount in Dundrum and above O'Shea's Pub on Merchant's Quay.
Howver, according to The Herald, eight of the nine hubs won't be ready by the end of the month as planned.
42 families are living in one of the properties at High Park in Drumcondra.
It's due to remodelling works not being completed.
Meanwhile the number of new homes under construction has risen to its highest monthly number since March 2014.
New figures show work started 2053 houses and apartments in May.
