In May 2020, Ballymore received planning approval for 435 residential homes at Royal Canal Park in Ashtown in Dublin 15.
Located on the site of the former Ormond Printworks on Ratoath Road, this mixed-use development will form Phase IV of Royal Canal Park and comprise 218 1-bed and 217 2-bed apartments and c.4,200 sq.m of commercial and amenity space. The development will also include public plazas, a healthcare centre, pharmacy, own-door offices and gym while 255 car parking spaces, electric vehicle charging points, disabled parking and nearly 950 bicycle parking spaces at surface and undercroft levels are also envisaged.
Situated within walking distances of existing key transport options, including Dublin Bus, cross city Luas service and Pelletstown rail station (currently under construction), residents of this canal-side location will enjoy a short commute to Dublin city centre. Residents will also benefit from public plazas, a landscaped central area of open space and the development’s proximity to the Royal Canal Greenway and Tolka Valley Park.
When this final phase is complete, the overall 162,000 sq m Royal Canal Park development will consist of over 1,630 residences, office space, cafes and retail units including an already operating Aldi supermarket.
