Permission granted for over 700 rental units in Dublin’s Docklands

Planning permission has been granted for the development of over 700 rental units in Dublin’s Docklands.

The eight apartment blocks of up to 18 storeys will be located between Sheriff Street and East Wall but have faced opposition from local residents due to the sheer height of the buildings.

The opposition also stated that an overwhelming majority of the buildings will only contain one and two-bed rental units in addition to the fact that they surpass the general height limit of 24 metres according to the city council.

An Bord Plean├íla has agreed to allow up to 18 metres while adding that “the proposed development is considered to be of strategic or national importance by reason of its potential to contribute to the achievement of the Government’s policy to increase delivery of housing set out in the Rebuilding Ireland Action Plan.”
