*Prime hotel development opportunity with planning for 177 keys*
The site which adjoins Connolly Station on Amiens Street extends to approx. 0.4 acres and represents a significant opportunity with planning permission in place for the construction of a seven-storey, 177 bedroom contemporary hotel.
The attractive hotel design provides for generously sized rooms, capable of accommodating multiple four-star hotel brand guidelines. There are also extensive bar and restaurant facilities at ground floor.
While the permitted scheme is of significant benefit to the site, there is scope to amend the current permission to provide significant additional room count within the permitted envelope through a reduction in room sizes (s.p.p.). Alternatively, there is scope to amend the current layout to provide an attractive apart-hotel scheme. Preliminary models have been drawn up for both alternatives (s.p.p.).
The site is highly accessible, strategically located in close proximity to the IFSC, the Convention Centre Dublin, Croke Park, 3 Arena and Bord Gáis Energy Theatre with numerous other city centre amenities, restaurants and tourist attractions within walking distance. It is in very close proximity to Connolly Rail and DART Station, Busáras Central Station, LUAS Red Line and numerous Dublin Bus routes.
The site falls under the DCC Development Plan 2016-2022 and under this Plan the entire site is zoned Objective Z5. Under the Draft DCC Development Plan 2022-2028 the site is set to maintain its Z5 zoning.
The immediate area is also expected to undergo significant regeneration with the extensive redevelopment at Connolly Station known as Dublin Arch.
