Ballymore has received planning permission for phase 2 of its Dublin Arch mixed-use development adjacent to Connolly Railway Station in Dublin 1.
Covering 72,300sq m, phase 2 of Ballymore’s Dublin Arch development consists of two residential blocks and four office buildings, all of which overlook a new central public space. The four office buildings can accommodate over 5,000 people and include landscaped gardens, terraces and roof gardens. The two residential blocks will house 187 homes comprising studio; 1 bed, 2 bed, and 3 bed apartments.
Chairman and Chief Executive of Ballymore Sean Mulryan welcomed the decision by saying: said: “We are very happy today to share the great news that we have received planning permission for the next phase of our Dublin Arch development. Ballymore are proud to contribute to the advancement and enhancement of this Dublin City Centre location and we are excited for our work to complement and elevate the existing environment for present and future generations to enjoy. Dublin Arch will be an exemplar in its focus on sustainability, with a commitment to Net-Zero 2030, along with delivering the highest level of sustainability certifications.”
Dublin Arch will include cultural and retail space, a café, and will be the new home to Docklands Boxing Club and St. Joseph’s O’Connell Boys GAA Club, where both clubs will have new facilities. Also included is over 7,000sq m of public open space and over 1,000 bicycle parking spaces for residents, visitors, and workers.
Dublin Arch is situated on lands adjacent to Connolly Station and bounded by Sheriff St Lower, Commons St and Oriel St. It extends to circa 111,000sq m and will include homes, office space, and Ireland’s first Standard Hotel. The masterplan envisages new homes, office buildings, community clubs, artists’ studios, restaurants, bars, retail, landscaped plazas, and a central public square located at the heart of the scheme. With direct access to Connolly Station and conveniently close to Bus and Luas lines, Dublin Arch will be Ireland’s most connected commercial hub.
