Plans (and schematics, H/T: Cian) submitted to An Bord Pleanála by Bartra Capital for the redevelopment of the former CBS school in Eblana Avenue, Dun Laoghaire (top)
Fionnuala Walsh in The Times Ireland edition reports:
Opposition is growing to a “Dickensian” development in Dublin that proposes to house tenants in rooms smaller than a disabled parking space and have up to 42 residents sharing a kitchen.
The “co-living” plans for a former Christian Brothers’ school on Eblana Avenue in Dún Laoghaire have been submitted to An Bord Pleanála by Bartra Capital.
If approved, the scheme will offer residents rooms with a pull-down double bed, a shower, lavatory, sink, kettle, mini-fridge and storage with communal kitchen and living areas for a minimum €1,300 a month.
The five-storey building will have 208 bedrooms, with up to 42 bedrooms on a floor. The rooms will be 16.25 square metres — a disabled parking space is typically at least 17 square metres.
