Full planning permission has been granted for 3 office buildings in Sandyford, South Dublin. The 24,000 sq.m development received approval in the minimum 8 weeks with no further information requests or third party submissions.
The high quality design created by STW fully meets the Client’s brief and complies with onerous local authority requirements as well as the robustness of the planning application documentation which included an EIS. The site is currently a ‘left-over’ back-land area surrounded by warehousing, highly engineered roads and motorways carrying heavy traffic.
The site is a ‘left-over’ back-land area surrounded by warehousing, highly engineered roads and motorways carrying heavy traffic. The design challenge was to transform this into a people friendly business destination and gateway into Sandyford.
This involved also working closely with the Local Authority Traffic and Parks Departments on their proposed design for a relief road through the site transforming it into an urban tree-lined boulevard avenue that, in addition to creating a desirable business address, also connects directly with the Luas public transport and the urban centre of Sandyford.
