Irish developers, Red Rock BPKH Limited are seeking approval from Dublin City Council to replace an existing two storey garage and showroom with a five storey Build- To- Rent Scheme on Harold’s Cross Road.
A new co-living scheme known as ‘Cork Street’ is now on site in Dublin 8. Enabling works on the large Build-to-Rent scheme have now begun and will prepare the approved scheme on Cork Street for construction.
The new scheme represents a unique development opportunity for Ireland’s largest co-living scheme and will require the initial demolition of 7 vacant buildings on-site.
The co-living scheme will reach 7-storeys and contain 378 bedspaces comprising both single and double occupancy rooms. Inside, residents will have communal living and kitchen areas on each floor where there will also be access to balcony or terraced areas.
Once complete, ‘Cork Street’ will provide a range of residential amenities including co-working spaces, a café, a cinema, a yoga space, a gym, and a library. The scheme will additionally include residential support facilities on the ground floor of the co-living scheme.
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. Additionally, the development is located in central Dublin, with public open spaces such as St Stephens Green and Iveagh Gardens just 1km away.
Co-living spaces often offer more affordable housing and indicators are suggesting that there is continuing demand within the target demographic for these schemes. ‘Cork Street’ will bring an amenity-rich and centrally located accommodation that will provide some respite from the ongoing housing crisis within Dublin and beyond.
