We are thrilled that planning permission has been granted for our residential development at Cookstown Crescent, Second Avenue in Dublin 24 following the first oral hearing for an SHD application. This development is Ireland’s first modular ‘build-to-rent’ and we are delighted it has been granted planning permission without any reduction in height or number of units. The development which is located right beside the Cookstown Luas Stop will provide nearly 200 units to the burgeoning ‘build-to-rent’ sector.

The proposal includes the demolition of existing industrial building to accommodate the construction of 196 ‘build-to-rent’ residential units, of a variety of types to accommodate modern living. These units will be arranged in four blocks that range from 6-9 storeys over basement in height. The development will include one commercial unit, an office, a crèche and a gym to bring street level activity to the ground floor level. The design accommodates 6 communal amenity spaces at ground and first floor levels, as well as a communal hot desk room and three communal secure storage spaces. A Landscaped courtyard, 408 no. bicycle spaces, an underground carpark, internal hard landscaping, including footpaths and street furniture are also included in this development.

We had previously achieved planning permission for a separate development of 107 units across three 5-storey blocks in February 2018 on the same site. Cookstown Crescent represents almost double the number of units and height secured with this planning permission. This is a direct result of the progressive planning policies introduced by Minister Eoghan Murphy and The Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government.
