A master plan to redevelop the Digital Hub site in Dublin's Liberties has been launched, which includes plans for hundreds of homes.

Social and affordable units will be delivered as part of the project, which will also see protected and historic buildings renovated.

Around 550 homes are planned for the 3.7-hectare site off Thomas Street, in blocks up to 12 stories high.

The Land Development Agency has published a draft master plan for the project, which will see most of the housing delivered in new apartment blocks.

Some of the homes will also be created in existing historic buildings.

Cycling and walking routes will link the land, which has been divided into four plots, and includes the famous St Patrick’s Tower, the oldest standing Smock Windmill in Europe.

The development is being called Pear Tree Crossing, referencing a tree on the site said to be the oldest fruit-bearing tree in Ireland.

A planning application is expected to be submitted next year with the project delivered on a phased basis from 2024.
