Plans for 263 apartments at vacant site on Greenhills Rd
PLANS for the development of 263 apartments on a vacant site on the Greenhills Road in Tallaght will be the subject of an upcoming pre-planning consultation.
The plans were submitted last month by Greenhills Living Limited, which has a registered address in Drumcondra and was set up in March 2021.
Pre-planning consultations are held in advance of developers submitting planning applications for Strategic Housing Developments (SHDs). A decision on the consultation is due by January 5, 2022.
According to South Dublin County Council’s Tallaght Local Area Plan 2020-2026, the overall area of Broomhill and Greenhills is to be “predominantly business with more mixed-use residential” uses.
The surrounding area is the subject of numerous large-scale developments, including the site of the former Gallahers cigarette factory on the Greenhills Road, where plans for a €110m residential development consisting of 502 apartments have been approved by An Bord Pleanála.
The former Cable and Wireless site on the corner of Airton Road and Belgard Road is set to house 328 apartments, across two apartment blocks, after developer Power Scaffolding Supplies Ltd was granted planning permission last year.
The Agnelli Motors site on the Greenhills Road is the subject of a pre-planning consultation for the development of 241 build-to-rent apartments, which An Bord Pleanála has not yet reached a decision on.
Plans for the development of 242 apartments on Broomhill Road in Tallaght will also be the subject of an upcoming pre-planning consultation.
The Tallaght District Heating Network, trading as Heatworks – Ireland’s first publicly owned, not-for-profit energy company, which will provide low carbon heat, sourced from an Amazon data centre on the Belgard Road to local community buildings – is also located nearby.
