Over 2000 affordable homes are set to be built in Dublin almost three years after the move was announced by the government.
The properties will be aimed at people who don't earn enough to secure a mortgage, but don't qualify for social housing.
A single person will be eligible if their salary is below €40,000 while the cut off point for couples is €75,000.
The plans were announced in Budget 2016 but have only recently been signed into law.
The cost of each home is estimated to be around €250,000.
According to The Irish Times, the 2,117 homes will be built on ten sites owned by Dublin City Council.
They include O'Devaney Gardens in the north inner city, Oscar Traynor Road, Darndale, Cherry Orchard and the planned new village on the Poolbeg peninsula.
