Work has commenced on the new Nursing Home planned for Stepaside Lane, Stepaside, Dublin 18. Contractors have started the demolition process of the existing 4 houses on site.
An Bord Pleanala have recently received plans for the construction of a Strategic Housing Development in Tallaght, Dublin 24. The proposed scheme, named ‘Bancroft View,’ will require the demolition and removal of current structures on site.
Should planning be successful, Bancroft View will involve the construction of four blocks that range in height from seven to eight storeys. These will accommodate 197 apartment units that will be a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom homes.
Each apartment in the scheme will have its own balcony area to provide private open space for residents. In terms of communal amenity space, plans include the provision of two resident lounges, a gym, 1667 sq.m of public open space and a roof garden on the eighth floor of Block A.
In addition to the residential units, the developers have proposed the construction of four commercial units and a childcare facility with associated external amenity space. All of these units will be located at ground floor level across the blocks and will provide beneficial amenities to the neighbourhood and future residents.
To complete the proposed development, car parking spaces will be provided for both the residents and visitors of Bancroft View.
Initial plans for this site got knocked back, so the developers and design team have amended the design of the scheme in hopes that this proposal will be a suitable addition to the Tallaght area. A decision is expected to be made by An Bord Pleanala on this proposal by next September.
CGI consultants, 3D Design Bureau, were involved early in the design stage to produce 3D Planning solutions. 3D Design Bureau worked closely with the development team to produce architectural CGIs and verified view montages that were used as part of the planning application submitted to South Dublin County Council.
