Almost 1,000 homes to be built on former Dundrum hospital grounds in SHD development

By | Industry News

Nearly 1,000 homes are set to be built on the lands of the former Dundrum Central Mental Hospital.

The Land Development Agency announced its intentions to apply to An Bord Pleanala for a 10-year permission for a Strategic Housing Development on the grounds of the former hospital.

In current plans, the site is squarely placed in the immediate area of a number of proposed protected structures, namely the ‘Asylum’, the ‘Catholic Chapel’, and the ‘Hospital Building’.

With a total application site area of c.9.6 ha, the development will consist of 977 residential units – almost all apartments.

Of the 957 apartments, 423 will be one bedroom units, 317 will be two bedroom units (for four people), 37 will be two bedroom units (for three people), 110 will be three bedroom units and 53 will be studio apartments.

Further 17 apartments will be duplex, consisting of three bedroom units and 14 three bedroom units.

Current plans see all apartments having private balconies and terraces as well as a communal amenity open space provision – including courtyards and a roof garden.

Of the other homes envisioned, 20 two and three storey houses are in current provisions, consisting of seven three bedroom units and 13 four bedroom units.

The development will also consist of 3,889 sqm of non-residential uses with the change of use and renovation of the existing single storey Gate Lodge building to provide a café.

A restaurant, six retail units, a medical unit, a community centre and a childcare facility with an associated outdoor play area are also included in the application.

The development will consist of the demolition of existing structures on the site, including a single storey former swimming pool and sports hall, a two storey redbrick building, a single storey ancillary and temporary structures and removal of existing internal subdivisions/ fencing, including removal of security fence at Dundrum Road entrance.

A demolition of a section of the porch and glazed screens at Gate Lodge building, the removal of walls adjacent to the Main Hospital Building and alterations and removal of sections of the wall to the Walled Garden are also included in current plans.

Provisions for public open spaces, cycle and pedestrian routes and parking are also accounted for.

Vehicles will be able to access the site from the existing access area off Dundrom Road and a new access area also off Dundrum Road to the south.

Construction underway for €38m Strategic Housing Development in South Dublin

By | Industry News

The construction of a huge, multi-million euro building providing over 150 apartments in the leafy Dublin suburbs of Deansgrange is now underway.

Lodged by developers under the Strategic Housing Development (SHD) act in June 2020 and was given the go-ahead by An Bord Pleanála (ABP) in October of that year, it has an estimated build value of €38m.

The site, located to the south of Deansgrange Cemetery, west of Foxrock Close and north of the Deansgrange Neighbourhood Centre, had encountered a number of refused planning permissions in the past.

With the onset of the new year, work officially commenced on January 4 – beginning with the demolition of all existing buildings on site.

This included a two-storey office / car showroom building, a former petrol filling station and affiliated car showroom uses.

In their wake, a mixed use building of four to six storeys over basement will be built.

The new construction will provide 151 new apartment units from ground level to the fifth floor.

The ground floor level will also offer a restaurant/café and five commercial units for the use of either office/professional services, a medical centre, a gym or another restaurant/café.

Current proposals will see the parking (including for motorcycles), bin storage and plant rooms at basement level.

Bicycle and designated car sharing parking spaces with a loading/set down area have been propositioned for the surface level.

Outdoor communal open spaces are planned for both the surface level and on the fifth floor.

For all elevated levels, balconies or terraces will be provided for the units.

Developers also plan to make public realm improvements along Deansgrange Road’s frontage.

To facilitate the development, boundary treatments and landscaping, an ESB sub-station, drainage and service works, the provision of a vehicular access and egress point,  pedestrian/emergency access point from Deansgrange Road and all other ancillary works will be undertaken.
