Student accommodation scheme gets green light

The new development in the south of the city.

A 207-bed purpose-built student accommodation development scheme has been given the green light for the South inner city.

Crosslane Student Developments, part of the Crosslane Group, announced that it has secured planning consent to deliver the project, which is their first student development in the city.

Completion of the scheme is due in time for the 2019/2020 academic year and Prime Student Living, the student accommodation lettings and operational management arm of Crosslane, will be responsible for achieving full occupancy prior to practical completion. 

The site is located at the junction of Carman’s Hall and Garden Lane, within the Dublin’s main ring road, just to the west of the city centre and south of the River Liffey.

The development is a short walk away from Trinity College Dublin and the Royal College of Surgeons’ campus, and University College Dublin and City University are easily accessible by bus. 

Crosslane say they worked closely with planning officers to ensure the development upholds and positively contributes to the character of the surrounding conservation area, while also delivering a scheme in line with the Dublin City Council’s Development and Regeneration Strategy.

Following feedback from the planning department, the external design was amended from initial proposals to ensure the impact of the development on local amenities and public access routes was minimised and the privacy of the neighbouring properties protected. 

The scheme itself will comprise three residential buildings of between three and six storeys, containing 207 high-specification en-suite beds arranged in cluster flats of between five to eight bedrooms.

The property will also feature significant dedicated communal areas, including a common room, gym and study room, a management suite, bicycle storage, a public coffee shop at ground level and a private outdoor landscaped courtyard.

Lisa Timberlake, Development Manager, Crosslane Student Developments, said they were delighted to have secured planning consent for their first student accommodation development in Dublin.

“The 207-bed scheme will significantly ease the demand for purpose-built student accommodation which persists in Dublin, whilst also delivering a building which reflects the planning officers’ vision for this exciting conservation and regeneration area,” she said.

“The scheme is conveniently located in the heart of the city centre, within easy reach of Trinity College Dublin and the Royal College of Surgeons and with excellent transport links that make it easily accessible to students from University College Dublin and City University.”
