Proposed Mixed-Use Scheme at the former Finglas Factory Site, Dublin 11.

Plans have been lodged for the redevelopment of the former factory site on Jamestown Road, Dublin 11. The mixed use development proposed by Jamestown Village Limited will initially involve the demolition of the existing ESB substation and boundary treatments to make way for five apartment blocks.

Designed by John Fleming Architects, the proposed scheme will contain 321 build-to-rent apartments and commercial units. The residential units will be a mix of one and two- bedroom apartments, each with their own balcony or terrace.

Several high-end amenities are included in plans and will be distributed across the five blocks. These will include a café, creche, gym, public gymnasium, and a cinema room. Furthermore, residents will enjoy access to an external roof terrace on Block D as well as a communal landscaped courtyard that includes a children’s play area. An additional 168 sqm of communal open space will also be available at the Southern elevation of Block A.

As for commercial space, the developers have reserved four of the five floors in Block E for office use with a total floor area of 4,497 sqm, with an additional 125 sqm planned for retail use.

Car parking will be provided at surface and basement levels, and bicycle parking spaces to be distributed throughout the scheme.

Located in a quiet and mature neighbourhood, this development sits within walking distance of Finglas village. Residents are just a stone’s throw away from Poppintree Park and a forty-minute bus ride from Dublin’s City Centre. The peaceful neighbourhood combined with easy access to the city’s centre makes this a perfect living and working location.
