The Coolock scheme had nearly doubled its height following the changing of height restriction regulations by Minister for Housing, Eoghan Murphy, earlier this year.
The development originally involved four apartment blocks with varying heights up to five stories, but this maximum height was doubled to ten following the relaxation of planning criteria.
Developers, Bartra Capital are set to complete a luxury housing development on a hidden site off Avoca Road in Blackrock.
The scheme, known as ‘Glensavage’ will feature 8 contemporary homes and 14 apartments spanning over 2.49 hectares of woodland.
The Blackrock scheme has been designed by award winning de Blacam and Meagher Architects and influenced by a Scandinavian concept.
To the northern end of the site, at the entrance from Avoca Road, there are three single-storey gate lodges. They are ‘L’ shaped in plan, focusing around private courtyards and gardens facing south west.
Beyond this, the site widens out to five large family homes, set within an open landscape. These also have an ‘L’ shaped plan, with all the principle rooms facing south west into private courtyards. To the southern end of the site are two apartment buildings, each three storeys and accommodating fourteen apartments in total, seven in each block with private terraces and balconies.
Located in a quintessential Blackrock environment, the homes are targeted as a modern edge for families, executives and downsizers.
The development is due to be completed in Spring 2020.
