3D Design Bureau

A New 191-unit Apartment Development is Coming to Glasnevin!

Note: 3D Design Bureau are NOT acting sales agents on the sale of any property within this development.

Dublin City Council has granted planning permission for Ruirside Developments Ltd. to build a large-scale strategic housing development (SHD), on Merville Place, Finglas Road, Glasnevin, Dublin 11.

The new residential development will be built on the former Premier Dairies site on Finglas Road. As part of the construction, the existing on-site structures will be demolished, to clear the way for the new development.

Let us help you secure planning!

The proposed development comprises of 191 apartment units that will be accommodated in three blocks ranging from five to six storeys in height. The residential units will be spread across 95 one-bedroom apartments, 76 two-bedroom apartments, and 20 three-bedroom apartments.

Future residents will benefit from a crèche onsite with an outdoor play area, as well as a communal amenity space and a total of 99 Car parking spaces.

The decision to grant planning permission for Ruirside Developments Ltd. involved amendments to the permitted strategic housing development application with An Bord Pleanála. This included the addition of nine apartment units at ground floor level across blocks two and three. View the original application here.

This reconfiguration has in turn lead to the reconfiguration of previously permitted bin and cycle storage resulting in increased cycle storage to provide 285 spaces with up to 15 lockable, and two-tier internal bike racks accommodating 230 bikes.

Merville Place will have controlled gates at three pedestrian access points, two will be placed along the Finglas road and one will be adjacent to the internal permitted vehicular gate.

CGI Consultants, 3D Design Bureau worked closely with the design team to provide 3D planning solutions including technical verified view montages (VVMs) and computer generated images (CGIs) which were submitted as part of the planning application to Dublin City County Council.

For this project, 3D Design Bureau was supplied with a 3D Model of the proposed development to work from. Our 3D Modelling team took extra care to review and optimise the supplied model which was used to produce the required deliverables.
