Additional info sought on first phase of Adamstown Centre
By Aideen O'Flaherty
ADDITIONAL information has been submitted in relation to plans for the development of the first phase of the Adamstown District Centre, which is to include 278 residential units.
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.
Plans have been lodged for the Adamstown District Centre
Last April, new plans for the first phase of the development, which are to be part of the Adamstown Strategic Development Zone, were lodged by Quintain Developments Ireland Limited.
The development is to be constructed in buildings ranging in height from four- to nine-storeys, and the non-residential aspect of the centre includes 16 retail units, including one supermarket unit, two retail services units, and five units that can be utilised for retail, restaurant or cafe uses.
The residential aspect is to consist of 16 studio units, 66 one-bed units, 151 two-bed units, and 45 three-bed units in a mix of apartments and duplexes.
Ancillary residents’ amenity rooms and facilities are also to be provided and all residential units are to be provided with private open space in the form of balconies or gardens.
A multi-storey car park accessed from Station Road by ramp at ground floor level is at first, second and third floor levels of the development, and the multi-storey car park includes residential car parking spaces as well as spaces associated with the supermarket unit and other non-residential uses in the district centre.
However, the third/top floor of the multi-storey car park will not be made available for car parking under this planning application as it is designed to cater for a subsequent phase of development, subject to a future planning application, according to the applicant.
The development provides a total of approximately 16,000sq.m of public realm including the creation of a new public square, internal streets and landscaping works, alterations to Station Road to include landscaping, and the reconfiguration of existing on street parking.
Quintain Developments lodged additional information last month, after it was requested by the local authority, including a road layout, raised crossing details, a safeguarding assessment, waste management information, and an architectural design statement.
The council has not yet made a decision on the planning application.
