Plans Lodged for a New €125m Mixed-use Scheme in Inchicore – Dublin 8.

Plans for a mixed-use development at the Former Michael’s Estate in Dublin 8, have recently been lodged by Dublin City Council.

The estimated €125m scheme in Inchicore will be part of Dublin City Council’s first-in-type initiative that aims to provide more affordable accommodation in urban areas where demand is high.

The proposed development on Emmet Road will include the construction of 578 homes that comprise a mix of studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. These residential units will be specifically constructed as social housing and cost-rental homes in alignment with the affordable housing initiative. This means that the rental cost of these homes will be dependent on the cost of construction, financing costs, and the building’s maintenance.

Other commercial and non-residential units are also in plans and include a supermarket, a library, community facilities and on-site parking spaces. These units will not only benefit future residents of this scheme but will also be a great addition to the surrounding Inchicore community.

CGI consultants, 3D Design Bureau, liaised with the development team to provide 3D planning solutions. 3D Design Bureau produced verified view montages and architectural CGIs which were submitted as part of the planning application.
