Citywest Hotel owners plan to build 274 residential units
THE owners of Citywest Hotel have applied to An Bord Pleanala for permission to build 274 residential units at a site on Mill Road in Saggart.
Tetrach Residential Limited, an arm of Citywest Hotel and Convention Centre owners Tetrach Capital, are seeking permission for a SHD (strategic housing development), which contains proposals for 51 houses, 38 duplex units, and 185 apartments.
The proposals also include the demolition of an existing single storey dwelling on the site.
Last year, Tetrarch made a submission to the South Dublin County Council Development Plan 2022-2028, regarding the rezoning of some 89 hectares of surrounding land they own in the area.
Some of the housing is proposed to be built on land at the former 18-hole Citywest golf course, which closed in early 2021.
The company say they want to rezone land in the Fortunestown / Citywest / Saggart area, to deliver “significant levels of affordable and senior living housing”, and support growth in the community via amenities such as new sports pitches, a community centre, public parks and greenways.
The Mill Road SHD scheme will range from two storey houses and three storey duplexes to five storey and part eight storey apartment blocks.
The proposed residential mix will comprise of 17 no. two-bed houses, 27 three-bed houses and 7 four-bed houses, two one-bed duplex, 17 two-bed duplex and 19 three-bed duplex units, 62 one-bed apartments, 119 two-bed apartments and 4 three-bed apartments.
A four classroom crèche of 276 sq.m are also included in the proposed development, along with provision for 276 car parking spaces and 634 bicycle spaces.
ABP are due to make a decision on the proposal by April 21, 2022.
