Extension of permission sought for 177 residential units in Adamstown

By Laura Lyne

AN EXTENSION of permission is being sought for a housing development that was previously submitted as part of the Adamstown SDZ, for 177 residential units that include 150 houses.

The original application for the development was granted permission back in February 2011 for a period of five years, and was made within the provisions of the Adamstown planning scheme, with the entire development taking place within the Adamstown SDZ.

Included within the development, which is to take place on a 3.98 hectare site located between Adamstown Avenue, Adamstown Park, Adamstown Boulevard and Adamstown Way, will be three two bedroom houses, 137 three bedroom houses and ten four bedroom houses.

27 apartments are also part of the development, arranged in three storey and five storey apartment buildings.

There will also be three areas of public open space within the development, with car and bicycle parking, internal roads and landscaping all included within the previously permitted application.

Support for the original application was given by local councillors William Lavelle (Fine Gael) and Eamon Tuffy (Labour).

Both the original application and the extension of permission was submitted by Castlethorn Construction, which includes property developer Joe O'Reilly among its directors.

O'Reilly is known to have reportedly owed NAMA up to €2.8 billion following the collapse of the housing market.

Castlethorn previously constructed a number of housing schemes in Adamstown, including The Sentinel Townhouses and The Courtyard at Adamstown Square – its commercial developments include the Adamstown Sentinel complex.

It lists “Adamstown Central” as one of its upcoming developments. A planning application for Adamstown Central by Castlethorn was previously submitted back in 2008, with plans for a Primary Healthcare Centre, an Inter-Church Place of Worship, a leisure centre and swimming pool, library, Enterprise Centre and several civic squares.

60 retail units, an eight screen cinema and 900 apartments would have rounded off the development, which was expected to cost €1.2 billion.
