Fast-track permission sought for 488 units on Fortunestown Lane in Saggart

By Aideen O'Flaherty

PLANS for a 488-unit apartment development on Fortunestown Lane in Saggart have been lodged with An Bord Pleanála (ABP).

Developer Greenacre Residential DAC lodged the plans for the Strategic Housing Development (SHD) with ABP last week, where developers who are planning to construct SHDs can apply directly to ABP under a fast-track system after consulting with the local authority.

It is proposed that the development will consist of 118 one-bed apartments, 327 two-bed apartments, and 43 three-bed apartments, to be housed in five blocks.

In their submission, the developer has outlined plans for four of the five blocks to reach five storeys in height, while one of the blocks is to have a nine-storey element.

Provision for a crèche, a community space, and retail/commercial space across six units at ground floor level is included in the plans.

Permission is also being sought for the development of 418 car-parking spaces, to include 405 basement-level spaces and 13 surface-level spaces, and 706 bicycle parking spaces.

A decision on the application has not yet been made by ABP.

Greenacre Residential DAC is also behind a number of other residential developments in South Dublin County, including the development of 473 dwellings at a site across from Citywest Shopping Centre, and 526 residential units at Fortunestown Lane and Garter Lane in Saggart.
