The proposed development will consist of external and internal amendments to a previously permitted development under DCC Reg. Ref. 3847/16 (ABP Ref. PL29S.248181) as subsequently amended by DCC Refs. 2625/18 and 2825/18. The proposed internal alterations include an increase in the previously approved basement, as permitted under DCC Ref. 2625/18 at -1 and -2 levels whereby the basement is extended at the south-eastern corner to provide an additional 252 sq.m (GFA) at -2 level and an additional 260 sq.m (GFA) at -1 level together with a reconfigured layout. The reconfigured layout at basement level -1 results in an increased quantum of floorspace and a revised layout of the previously approved Retail Unit No. 3. At ground floor level, a revised layout and reconfiguration is proposed on foot of the inclusion of the previously omitted Retail Unit 4 (occupied by Lemon Crepes). The previously approved office entrance/ lobby under DCC Ref. 2625/18 is proposed to be relocated to the south-eastern corner of the building, resulting in the omission of the previously approved Retail Unit No. 5 and the amalgamation/ reconfiguration of the previously approved Retail Unit No. 3. It is also proposed to relocate the proposed ESB sub-station; switch room and goods lift at ground floor level. Alteration to the first-floor layout of Retail Unit no. 3 includes the relocation of the void above the previously permitted office foyer location to the south-eastern corner of the building. The proposed internal alterations associated with the relocation and reconfiguration of the main office entrance/ lobby and Retail Unit No. 3 result in external changes to the proposed eastern elevation. In the interest of clarity, the revised configuration/ layout of the basement will not result in any changes to the previously permitted quanta of car parking, bicycle parking and motorcycle spaces at 30, 170 and 9 spaces, respectively. The proposed amendments would result in (a) an overall increase of floor space from an approved 22,268 sq.m (GFA) to 22,770 sq.m (GFA) – an increase of 502 sq.m (GFA); (b) a reduction of 134 sq.m to the previously permitted office floorspace from 11,861 sq.m (GFA) to 11,727 sq.m and (c) an increase of approximately 317 sq.m (GFA) to the previously approved retail floorspace from 7,473 sq.m (GFA) to 7,790 sq.m (GFA).
