The site for Mount Saint Anne’s originally served as farmland for St. Anne’s Convent, and its development as a contemporary, dense housing scheme heralded the changing nature of Dublin’s suburbs.

The site strategy preserves mature trees within a central park, which is enclosed by apartment buildings, and provides a setting for the various historic structures.  An attractive, tree lined avenue runs to the east of the apartments, which connects to a series of streets and courtyards which are defined by terraced housing and duplexes. The project has become a benchmark for successful housing developments in Ireland.
