PERMISSION is being sought for the demolition of a warehouse unit in Cookstown Industrial Estate – which is adjacent to a unit that burned down last year – for the development of a 64-unit apartment building in its place.

Alanna Homes Limited outlined plans for the construction of a new five-to-six-storey apartment building in their application for planning permission.

Plans have been lodged to demolish this warehouse in Cookstown Industrial Estate for 64 apartments in its place

The proposal includes the development of 20 one-bed apartments, 16 two-bed apartments, eight three-bed apartments, and 20 two-bed duplex apartments, while one ground floor unit is for retail or café uses.

 The proposed development also provides for a podium and an undercroft car parking area at ground floor level, accommodating 37 car parking spaces, 167 bicycle parking spaces, bin storage, plant room and two ESB substations.

Vehicular access to the development will be from the Cookstown Road, and the development includes all private and communal open spaces, landscaping, boundary treatments, vehicular and pedestrian site access, bin storage, bike storage, signage and all associated site development works.

The site development works include service connections, foul and surface water drainage/attenuation and water supply/storage, on a total site area of approx. 0.28ha (0.7acres).

A decision on the application has not yet been made by South Dublin County Council.

The Alanna Homes site is Unit 73 of Cookstown Industrial Estate, which is adjacent to fire damaged Safa Foods unit, Unit 74, which was damaged in an industrial fire last November.

Breeo Foods lodged a planning application with South Dublin County Council last month, seeking permission for the demolition of Safa’s fire damaged unit. A decision on the demolition is due from the local authority by April 11.
