In April 2013, the National Association of Building Co-operatives (NABCO) announced plans to develop a number of housing projects, including the former tenement building at the Moss Street/Gloucester Street junction in Dublin 2. However, a formal proposal for this development was only submitted to my Department in recent weeks by Dublin City Council and it is now being evaluated. A response on the matter will issue to the City Council shortly.
