New Housing Development is Proposed for Fosterstown, Swords.

A seven-year planning permission is being sought by J. Murphy Developments Limited for the construction of a Strategic Housing Development in Fosterstown, Swords, County Dublin. The estimated €158.2m development has been submitted to An Bord Pleanala and will cover a floor area of 75,369 m2.

The development involves the construction of 10 blocks ranging from 4 to 10 storeys in height that will house a total of 645 residential units. There will be a mix of one, two, and three-bedroom apartments that will each have access to private balconies and terraces.

Several non-residential units will also be incorporated into the apartment blocks including a community facility, a childcare facility, and 5 commercial units.

Furthermore, the developers dedicated a large portion of the scheme to open space amenities. If granted, the scheme will offer two playing pitches, a children’s play area, and an ancillary play area for the childcare facility. Both surface and basement level parking will also be included for bicycles and cars.

The population of the Swords area has almost doubled over the last twenty years and is only projected to grow. This development could help accommodate this growth and add several amenities to the popular North Dublin area.

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 as part of the planning application submitted to Fingal County Council
