Cork Street & Brickfield Lane

Cork Street & Brickfield Lane

Douglas Wallace commenced work in January 2016 to deliver a well-designed student housing scheme on this Brown field Site at the rear of the old Donnelly Centre on Cork Street and Brickfield Lane.

“Douglas Wallace expedited the Planning Application on this site and delivered an exceptional
Planning Permission which has done exactly what we wanted and more”

The application for Cork Street & Brickfield Lane was for a 281 Bed Student Residence along with Leisure and Commercial Offices.

Early negotiations with Dublin City Planning Department led to an in principle agreement as to the architectural massing and quantum of the development. Negotiations also took place with the adjacent owners to understand any observations they had and these were accommodated in the final planning permission documentation which led to no third party appeal.

Douglas Wallace managed the entire consultant team ensuring that the planning documentation was robust and sufficient to ensure a positive consideration.

Planning permission was sought in July 2016. The Request For information (RFI) issued in September 2016 was limited in its request for additional information. Following our response, the Notification to Grant was issued in December 2016. Development 8 have now put the property on the market with BNP Paribas Real Estate and are confident of a sale for this efficient and well-designed building by Douglas Wallace Consultants
