Forget even apartments, why cant people live in terance house the likes of which you find Rathmines, Drumcondra, Ranaleigh etc. Most of these victorian houses are still considered high status homes yet living in a new built terrance is looked down upon, people would commute an extra hour so they can aford a semi-d as opposed to a terrance house. Meduim rise, high density terrance houses would be a big improvment on detacthed houses with big front and back gardens.

i think that may have been the case but not so now. unfortunately though, those areas are now too expensive. i got a shock when a two bed terrace on the wrong side of drumcondra (shadows of croke park) was on the market for 450. indeed besides summerhill the terraces houses around drumcondra/phibs are the fastest rising properties at the moment.
