Up to 24 housing units are being created in the old ESB shop in Leixlip, it has emerged.
Councillor Joe Neville had raised the issue with the Co Council.
Officials said the Council recently sought Expressions of Interest from Approved Housing Bodies (AHB) to develop the site as a housing scheme for older people.
Following assessment of the submissions, the Cluid Housing Association was selected as the successful applicant.
This site will accommodate 20-24 units and work is now ongoing to progress the scheme.
