The apartments, a mix of social and affordable/cost rental housing, includes one, two and three bedroom units. A retail/ café unit, c 1,000sqm of cultural and community space and a mobility hub also feature. Over 1.000 cycle parking spaces and nearly 90 car parking spaces will be provided throughout the site. New public open spaces and a communal amenity space and playground are also proposed.

The application has now been submitted to An Bord Pleanála for decision. A six week period from today (9th December 2022) applies for the making of observations on the proposals.
