Plans Granted for New €145m Ballyfermot Development!

Dwyer Nolan Developments have secured planning approval for the construction of 927 apartments in Ballyfermot, Dublin 10. Plans for the overall development will involve a large amount of demolition and the renovation of the existing structure on site.

The Strategic Housing Development will be contained within 8 blocks that reach up to 13 storeys on the grounds of the former De La Salle National School. The residential units included will be a mix of apartments, duplexes and triplexes that will be provided with private balconies, terraces or gardens.

The remaining space within the blocks will allow for the construction of an additional commercial unit and a retail or café unit. Each of the blocks will contain a community amenity room, some with an associated outdoor terrace.

The central classroom block of the school, including 2 staircase towers, is a protected structure and will undergo renovation to be included within one of the approved 8 blocks. The structure will change in use to accommodate a childcare centre with an outdoor play area and a community unit.

Developers plan to include an extensive amount of open space in this development. The centre of most blocks will contain communal open space or will provide roof gardens or podium level open space. Additionally, the construction of multi-use playing pitches and a running fitness trail are also outlined in plans.

As part of this application, the developers have submitted a statement outlining how this development will align with the objectives of the Dublin City Council Development Plan 2016-2022. This plan helps determine the whereabouts of new schemes and how they will be constructed to ensure the development process is inclusive and beneficial to the citizens it will impact. Adhering to these guidelines will help developers secure planning permission for the development.

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 CGIsverified view montages, and a BRE Daylight and Sunlight Analysis.
