Plans for 211 apartments at Glen Abbey Complex

By Aideen O'Flaherty

PLANS for the demolition of existing industrial buildings at the Glen Abbey Complex in the Cookstown Industrial Estate to make way for the development of 211 apartments have been lodged with An Bord Pleanála.

Square Foot Property Services Limited lodged an application for a consultation about a Strategic Housing Development (SHD) with ABP last week, where developers who are planning to construct SHDs can apply directly to ABP after consulting with the local authority.

The Glen Abbey site on Belgard Road planned for 211 apartments

Areas near the Glen Abbey Complex have already been earmarked for sizeable residential developments, including the development of 345 apartments at the former Cable and Wireless site on Airton Road.

Property developer Marlet received permission for a substantial residential development nearby on the Belgard Road, to consist of 438 apartments, a 403 bed-space student accommodation scheme and a new urban quarter.

Cookstown Industrial Estate is also set to become a hive of residential development, with the planned construction of 107 apartments on Second Avenue, a separate 196-unit development also on Second Avenue, while plans for a 336-unit residential development on Fourth Avenue are currently under consideration by ABP.

Data centres belonging to internet giant Amazon are in the locality, which has been the focus of a wave of development in recent years.

Concerning the proposed Glen Abbey Complex Development, a decision is due on the application by December 2.
