An application was recently consented for 741 homes as part of the Connolly Quarter development adjacent to Connolly Railway Station in Dublin 1.
The planning consent forms part of an overall scheme for the Connolly Quarter which proposes 741 homes, of which 75 will be for social housing, two office buildings along with a hotel, and over 20 retail and amenity units. The project will create over 1,000 direct construction jobs for five years including training and apprenticeships opportunities at all levels. The development 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.
It is anticipated that on completion, circa 5,000 people will live in and/or work in the area.
