Ballymore, the international property development company, has received planning permission to construct three commercial blocks at the Connolly Quarter development adjacent to Connolly Railway Station in Dublin 1.
The commercial development, covering 42,670sq.m, includes two office buildings along with a 246-bedroom hotel and will range in height from nine to 13 storeys. This includes space for ten retail units. Today’s approval from Dublin City Council follows the submission of a planning application last summer and a request for further information which was provided in October.
Sean Mulryan, Founder and Group Chief Executive of Ballymore, said: “I’m delighted to receive planning permission for our commercial proposals at the Connolly Quarter development in the heart of Dublin city. Throughout this process, we are committed to working with the local community to ensure we provide a state-of-the-art development which complements the existing environment for current and future generations to enjoy”.
Extending to c. 80,000 sq. m, the overall Connolly Quarter masterplan comprises apartments, offices, a hotel, local community clubs, restaurants, bars, retail, amenities and landscaped plazas. On completion, the Connolly Quarter will be home to over 5,000 people who will live and work in this newly regenerated part of Dublin 1.
Implementing all proposed development in the Masterplan would create over 1,000 direct construction jobs for five years including training and apprenticeships opportunities at all levels. The Connolly Quarter will also be the new home to Docklands Boxing Club and St. Joseph’s O’Connell Boys GAA Club, where both clubs will have state-of-the-art new facilities.
