Planning permission at 60-63 Dawson Street and 3 Duke Lane (Hibernian House); 64-65 Dawson Street and 34-39 Nassau Sgtreet (Hibernian Corner) and 40-43 Nassau Street (Nassau House), Dublin 2. The proposed development will consist of external and internal amendments to a previously permitted development under DCC 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 floor space 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 substation, 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 revised configuration / layout of the basement will not result in any changes to the previously permitted quanta of car parking, or motorcycle spaces. However, the level of bicycle parking is proposed to be increased to provide 191 no. spaces. The proposed external alterations include: (a) Alterations to internal floor-to-floor heights to provide a uniform five storey street parapet height at a level of approximately 26.76m O.D. (approximately 20.56m above ground level) along both the Dawson Street and Nassau Street facades; (b) Omission of permitted rooftop plant and associated screening at sixth floor level and replacement with a proposed new sixth floor roof extension to provide an additional 1,574 sq.m (GFA) of office floor space at sixth floor level. The proposed roof extension at sixth floor level is set back to provide a north-; east- and south facing roof terrace and a separate west facing roof terrace at sixth floor level. The previously permitted building height is increased from a permitted roof parapet level of 32.175m O.D. to a proposed level 34.4m O.D. (increase of approximately 2.2m in height) together with provision of screened rooftop plant above (top of plant screen level varies from 36.8m to 37.0m O.D.); (c) Replacement of west facing terrace at second floor level and extension of the permitted office floor space in a westerly direction together with the extension of the permitted office floor-plates at third to fifth floor level in a similar fashion to ensure the upper levels at second to fifth floor levels align vertically with the permitted western facade at first floor level; (d) Replacement of southern, west facing terrace at fourth floor level and the extension of the permitted office floorplates at fourth and fifth floor level in a westerly direction in a manner that these levels align vertically with the permitted western facade at third floor level; (e) Extension of the office floorplate at fifth floor level in a southerly direction in a manner that it aligns vertically with the permitted fourth floor level below and in order to align the main service core of the building with the levels below together with the reconfiguration of the previous permitted roof terraces at revised fifth floor level; (f) Replacement of north facing terrace at fourth floor level and extension of the permitted office floorplate in a northerly direction in a manner that it aligns vertically with the permitted northern facade at third floor level; (g) Realignment and increase of the permitted setback from northern parapet at fifth floor level to align vertically with proposed new sixth floor level; (h) The proposed internal and external alterations (above) result in associated changes to the previously permitted elevations. In the interest of clarity, the proposed amendments would result in (a) an overall increase of floor space from an approved 22,268 sq.m (GFA) to 24,902 sq.m (GFA) – an increase of 2,634 sq.m (GFA); (b) an increase of 1,998 sq.m to the previously permitted office floor space from 11,861 sq.m (GFA) to 13,859 sq.m, and (c) an increase of approximately 317 sq.m (GFA) to the previously approved retail floor space from 7,473 sq.m (GFA) to 7,790 sq.m (GFA).
