Construction Commences for 155 Apartments – Donabate

Work is now underway on the construction of 155 apartments in Donabate. The scheme is being developed by Elchior Construction Limited who received the green light from An Bord Pleanála back in August 2020

Approved under fast-track planning, ‘The Gallery’ will be spread across 3 housing blocks, spanning in height from 3 to 5 storeys. The 155 apartments will comprise one, two, and three-bedroom apartment units that will each have private balconies or terraces.

The Donabate development was placed on the market by joint agents Knight Frank Ireland and Dillon Marshall Property Consultants. The approved scheme is envisaged to be operated as a rental scheme but as it has been designed to build-to-sell apartment standards it provides excellent flexibility for purchasers.

The scheme will include amenities such as a crèche facility, a commercial gym, a single retail unit and a significant community amenity space, greens, and playgrounds. A basement with underground parking for 144 cars, 5 motorcycles, and 300 bicycles is also outlined in the plans.

‘The Gallery’ is located within a 3-minute walk of Donabate’s Main Street and train station which will provide future residence with direct access to Dublin City. Swords, Dublin Airport, the M1 and M50 motorways are also nearby the Donabate area.
