178 residential units planned for at Edmondstown House

CONSTRUCTION of a mixed-use development, which includes 178 residential units, make up part of a new fast-track planning application filed with An Bord Pleanála (ABP).

BCDK Holdings Limited and Coill Avon Limited are seeking permission for a Strategic Housing Development (SHD) at lands at Kilmashogue House and Coill Avon House at Whitechurch Road in Rathfarnham.

Plans, which are known as the Edmondstown SHD, are for the construction of 178 residential units comprising of 72 houses, 38 apartments and 68 duplex apartments.

A neighbourhood centre located below a landscaped podium, which accommodates a two level creche and three retail/non-retail service/café units is also part of the plans.

Demolishing Kilmashogue House and Coill Avon House along with their associated outbuildings is subject to the application.

Part of the proposal is for the refurbishment and re-use of two stone buildings for community use, which will be incorporated into an area of public open space on the southern lands of the subject site.

As the site falls on lands part-owned by Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, that authority has given consent for the developer to include road design improvements at College Road in the proposed SHD.

Upgrade works to College Road include a new two-way cycle track and relocated footpath from the Whitechurch Road junction to provide connectivity to the Slang River pedestrian/cycle greenway.

A new signalised crossroads junction to connect a proposed link street, to provide access to the southern development lands, with Whitechurch Road and College Road is proposed.

Basement and surface level car and bicycle parking, foul sewer drainage works, boundary treatments, an ESB substation, signage and upgrades to the entrance of the subject site make up part of the application as well.

BCDK Holdings Limited and Coill Avon Limited lodged the planning application with ABP on March 21, 2022.

The Board is set to decide the case by July 11, 2022.
