Location : Carnlough Rd, Cabra, Dublin 7
Planning permission was recently granted by An Bord Pleanála for this site, located between Cabra Road, Fassaugh Avenue, Carnlough Road and the Connolly to Heuston railway. The development also includes a crèche, 2 retail units and a civic centre. The configuration of the scheme is based on a mix of housing typologies including Terraced Houses, Duplex Units and Apartments. The layout of the scheme has largely been determined by the unique site characteristics. Low rise residential units back onto the existing houses along Carnlough Road while taller apartment blocks front on to the railway line. The greatly lowered site datum of between 1-2 storeys, relative to the surrounding houses, will allow the visual impact of the scheme to be greatly reduced on the existing urban fabric.
