By Aideen O'Flaherty

PLANS for the second phase of the development of the Adamstown District Centre, to consist of the construction of 185 apartments, have been lodged with South Dublin County Council.

Quintain Developments Ireland Limited is seeking permission for a residential development to be constructed in two buildings ranging in height from four- to nine-storeys, containing a total of 185 apartments.

Adamstown Site 05 1

185 apartments are planned as part of Adamstown District Centre

The apartments are to comprise 82 one-bedroom apartments, 102 two-bedroom apartments, and one three-bedroom apartment.

The development provides a total of 1,249 sq.m landscaped public open space, principally in two areas: to the north and to the south west of the site.

Provision of a total of 1,478 sq.m residents’ communal open space is provided at ground floor level and at first floor level on a podium above the car parking area, with a further 486sq.m of communal open space in the form of buffers and planted areas, is included in the plans.

Permission is also being sought for 93 car parking spaces for the development, with ten at street level and 83 beneath the podium between the two apartment blocks.

A further ten car parking spaces are to be provided at street level, but are reserved for use by a future phase of development, and 225 bicycle parking spaces are to be provided.

In terms of road infrastructure for the site, permission is also being sought for a new toucan crossing at Station Road and other roads infrastructure across the development including insertion of tactile paving, raised tables, a loading bay and roads signage.

A decision on the application is due from South Dublin County Council by June 15.

As previously reported in The Echo last October, the first phase of the Adamstown District Centre, to include 278 residential units, was given the green light by the council.

The initial phase of district centre, which is to be mixed-use commercial and residential, was first primed back in January 2008 when the plans were lodged with South Dublin County Council, but work never began on the centre as construction work ground to a halt during the recession.
