London-based Irish property developer Pat Doherty’s Harcourt Developments is working with Ireland’s ‘bad bank’, NAMA, to build 526 homes in south west Dublin.

The project, 459 houses and 67 apartments, is one of NAMA’s biggest joint ventures.

Donegal-man Doherty, 75, is the visionary behind Belfast’s Titanic Quarter and one of a select band of Irish businessmen and developers to have successfully survived NAMA intact after the near collapse of Ireland’s banking system during the country’s property crash.

He also developed the successful Park West industrial park off the M50 just outside Dublin.

NAMA and Harcourt have applied for planning permission at a site in Saggart, for a project called Greenacre.

It will be near the Harcourt’s other venture, the Cuil Duin housing estate, which it put on the market last year.
