Plans for this development date back to 2007 when former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern endorsed the idea of having a national science exhibit similar to the London Science Museum. The 2008 financial crisis stalled plans, but the development eventually received planning approval in 2016 and now tender applications are being sought for its construction.
Plans have been approved by Kildare County Council for the construction of a Large Residential Development (LRD) on the lands at Glencarrig House in Celbridge, Co. Kildare.
Garyaron Homes Limited have secured a 5-year planning permission for the large residential development on this site which will require approximately 800 sqm of demolition before construction can begin.
The new residential development will provide 137 residential units to the Celbridge area. These will be a mix of houses and apartments that will range up to 4-bedroom across the scheme. The apartments will be contained within three apartment blocks that will reach 5 storeys at their highest and each apartment will have its own balcony or terrace. The 2-3 storey houses in the scheme will be provided with private back gardens.
The development will incorporate a creche which will be include an outdoor play area. Furthermore, there will be approximately 4,380 sqm of public open space within the scheme which includes play areas, outdoor seating, and pedestrian & cycle links.
Car and bicycle parking will be provided both for visitors and residents, and a bicycle storage building will be included within the creche unit.
In recent years, Celbridge has grown as a town that harbours impressive Georgian architectural heritage. The traditional pubs, voluntary organisations, and community spirit led Celbridge to be nominated as one of the best places to live in Ireland last year. The approved scheme will add to the growing community and will be a step in the right direction when dealing with the country-wide housing crisis.
