Plans applied for €45m housing development on historic site in Limerick

By | Industry News

A planning application has been applied for a €45 million housing development in Limerick.

Developers hope to build the Large-Scale Residential Development (LRD) on the site of the former Ardhú House off Ennis Road.

The project hopes to change the use of the historical Ardhú House from commercial to residential use – demolishing all 20th-century extensions to the front, rear and side.

The protected structure will then be converted into four new apartments.

Developers Tribeca Asset Management Limited also hope to build seven detached two-storey houses on the site.

These will be accessed by an existing entrance on Roses Avenue.

For Ardhú House, once all non-historic extensions are demolished, a new single-storey glazed extension will be added to the front, as well as another glazed addition to the south of the side wing on the ground floor.

On top of the four new apartments, Ardhú House will be refurbished for other residential amenity uses such as a gym, co-working space and administrative space at ground floor level and a lounge, dining, cinema and games room on the first floor.
