Planning Granted for €17M Mixed Use Scheme in Dublin 8

The Dublin 8 area has experienced rapid redevelopment over the past number of years with many projects ongoing and a number in the planning stages. Newmarket, in particular has been the focus of an unprecedented amount of development with its vibrant markets being the first to bring life back to what became a forgotten corner of the city. The opening of the Teeling Distillery in June 2015 heralded the start of the latest phase of its regeneration, following through with numerous student and mixed -use schemes. The latest to receive planning is a proposed mixed-use development located at the Brewery Block, bounded by, Ardee Street, Newmarket, St Luke’s Avenue. #Team3DDB created a series of verified view montages which were used to secure planning.
