Dublin City Council has unveiled plans for a major redevelopment at Emmet Road in Inchicore. The plans have now been submitted to An Bord Pleanála who will determine the scheme.
The culmination of an extensive community engagement process to regenerate the former St Michael’s Estate, the Emmet Road scheme will see the development of c. 4.68 hectares in Inchicore with 578 no. apartments, a new Community Hub and Public Library for Inchicore, a creche, a supermarket, and five smaller retail/café/restaurant units. The scheme will also include a public plaza fronting onto Emmet Road and wide ranging public realm and landscaping, creating a new neighbourhood bounded by Emmet Road, Patriot’s Path, St Vincent’s Road West and Goldenbridge Cemetery.
The housing development will comprise 30% social housing and 70% publicly-owned cost rental housing, and is the largest development to date for cost rental housing proposed in Dublin (what is cost rental housing?)
The scheme is set around a series of blocks ranging to 7 storeys in height, connected by public realm, pedestrian walkways and courtyards. Over 100 car parking spaces are proposed as well as extensive cycle parking.
The scheme is now under consideration by An Bord Pleanála. Public submissions on the scheme may be made in writing by 28th November 2022. Full details of the proposal can be found at www.emmetroad.ie. while plans and particulars can also be found at Dublin City Council offices at Civic Offices, Wood Quay, South Central Area Office, Eblana House, Marrowbone Lane, and Inchicore Library, Richmond Barracks.
