Irish developers, MKN Property have received the green light for the construction of a 15-storey hotel, 88 build-to-rent apartments, and an office scheme on Dublin’s East Wall Road.
Plans have been lodged to Dublin City Council for the construction of 44 build-to-rent apartments on a site at the junction of Appian Way and Leeson Street in Dublin 4. The application was lodged by RGRE J&R Valery’s Ltd, a company owned by Irish developer, Johnny Ronan.
The proposed development will comprise 29 studios and 15 one-bed units contained within a single 9 + 1 storey setback over a ground floor block. The top floor setback is designated as a communal amenity and terrace space. All the units will have access to private amenity space in the form of either balconies or terraces.
Other ancillary residential amenities will include a guest suite with 2 visitor rooms, reception, parcel lockers, management facilities, and bicycle storage. The scheme aims to prioritise sustainability, with a focus on energy efficiency features, while 66 bicycle parking spaces will take priority over private car spaces.
Gavin Wyley, head of residential at Ronan Group, commented, “At a time of severe housing shortage in Dublin City, this development will consist of 44 much-needed homes complete with key features including a top floor set-back and designated as a communal amenity and terrace space.”
