9 Storey BTR Apartment Scheme Approved on Davitt Road, Dublin 12.

The south Dublin suburb of Drimnagh is set to welcome a new housing development as An Bord Pleanála approved the construction of 188 build-to-rent apartments on Davitt Road. The scheme, designed by Henry J Lyons Architects, is being developed by Heidelberg Davitt Limited.

The approved scheme will sit on a 0.57-hectare site which currently houses the former Heidelberg-Miller building and SCR Garage. Both buildings will be demolished as part of the project.

The 188 apartments will be contained within a single ‘U-shaped’ block that will be part three- to part nine-storeys in height. The apartments include 20 studios, 79 one-bed units, and 89 two-bed units.

The Drimnagh development will also see the construction of two commercial units which could be allocated for shop, office, medical centre, gym, or restaurant use. The plans outline built-to-rent resident support facilities such as a resident’s store, management area, workspace, games room, and a gym on the ground floor.

Large sections of the site will be allocated for public and open space. The plans outline the provision of open greens, play areas, and a roof terrace. Public realm improvements along the Davitt Road frontage are also outlined in the plans. The development will include a total of 69 car parking spaces, 4 motorcycle spaces, and 386 bicycle spaces.
