A Look Inside: 7-Storey Co-Living Scheme, Cork St, Dublin

‘Cork Street’ is a large built-to-rent, co-living development that has recently received planning approval from An Bord Pleanála.

The development will see the construction of a 7-storey co-living scheme that will contain 378-units on Cork Street, Dublin 8. The project involves the demolition of 7 vacant buildings on-site, some of which are derelict.

The development was acquired by Geneva-based group Stoneweg as part of a joint venture in 2020.

Inside, ‘Cork Street’ will include a range of residential amenities such as a café, social rooms, a cinema, a yoga space, a gym, and a library.

Each floor will contain communal kitchen/living/dining rooms along with co-working spaces. Residential support facilities will include a laundry, post room, and public bathrooms at ground floor.

The 1-acre site will feature a range of open space provisions including landscaped gardens, a roof garden, and external balconies accessed from communal areas.
