First phase of District Centre plans lodged

By Aideen O'Flaherty

PLANS for the development of the first phase of the Adamstown District Centre, to include 278 residential units, have been lodged with South Dublin County Council, over a decade since the plans were first revealed back in 2008 before the development had to be shelved as a result of the economic downturn.

The initial phase of district centre, which is to house mixed-use commercial and residential development, was first primed back in January 2008 when the plans were lodged with the council, but work never began on the centre as construction work ground to a halt during the recession.

Last month, new plans for the first phase of the development, which are to be part of the Adamstown Strategic Development Zone, were lodged by Quintain Developments Ireland Limited.

The development is to be constructed in buildings ranging in height from four- to nine-storeys, and the non-residential aspect of the centre includes 16 retail units, including one supermarket unit, two retail services units, and five units that can be utilised for retail, restaurant or cafe uses.

The residential aspect is to consist of 16 studio units, 66 one-bed units, 151 two-bed units, and 45 three-bed units in a mix of apartments and duplexes.

Ancillary residents’ amenity rooms and facilities are also to be provided and all residential units are to be provided with private open space in the form of balconies or gardens.

A multi-storey car park accessed from Station Road by ramp at ground floor level is at first, second and third floor levels of the development, and the multi-storey car park includes residential car parking spaces as well as spaces associated with the supermarket unit and other non-residential uses in the district centre.

However, the third/top floor of the multi-storey car park will not be made available for car parking under this planning application as it is designed to cater for a subsequent phase of development, subject to a future planning application, according to the applicant.

The development provides a total of approximately 16,000sq.m of public realm including the creation of a new public square, internal streets and landscaping works, alterations to Station Road to include landscaping, and the reconfiguration of existing on street parking.

The insertion of raised table at station entrance, taxi set-down spaces and creation of two bus bays to the north and south of Station Road and the creation of vehicular and pedestrian accesses to the site from Adamstown Avenue, Station Road and Adamstown Park is included in the plans.

A decision on the application is due from South Dublin County Council by July 4.
