Aparthotel Planned for Dublin 2

Dublin 2 is currently buzzing with new developments, so it probably comes as no surprise that yet another aparthotel is about to go up in SOBO. There is no doubt that this is great news for the city and the Grand Canal/D2 area in general, but I suppose the elephant in the room is: where are all the city centre residential developments? Yes, tourism is on the rise and the city needs space to house this massive influx of visitors but where oh where will all the newly hired tech, fintech, start-up recruits etc etc and their families live in the coming year or two? Because, they are coming and we’re already sitting in a housing deficit and rental crisis……quite possibly, the aparthotel is a partial answer to this question and would explain why the city is seeing such an enormous increase in this type of accommodation. Not only can it be used as student accommodation but also a temporary residential solution which might be particularly useful for those who will work 4 day weeks in Dublin and return back home to the mainland or UK for the weekend. #Team3DDB recently completed various visuals for an aparthotel scheme in D2. This is the third major project in this area that we’ve worked on in the past 12 months.
