Knight Frank are seeking expressions of interest from parties including developers and PRS investors for a prime residential development opportunity at the Paper Mill, Clonskeagh, Dublin 6.

The Paper Mill which is a very high profile site with excellent frontage onto Clonskeagh Road and the River Dodder has full planning permission for 126 apartments comprising 25 x one beds, 98 x two beds and 3 x mews/penthouse units. The site, which is of approx. 1.375 hectares (3.4 acres) is in a fantastic location with the benefit of full river frontage to the River Dodder with a proposed walkway to provide the full benefit of this rare water amenity. In addition to the planning for 126 units the site also includes 10 existing period houses which are located directly on Clonskeagh Road with full planning permission for refurbishment and extension. The approved scheme designed by CCK architects is of high quality contemporary design with over 18,000 sq. ft. of private balcony space for residents to enjoy the scenic views along the river. The proposed scheme has high ceilings throughout the apartments complementing the quality of the Clonskeagh location being an established and highly desirable residential neighbourhood.

The scheme is located on the site of the former Smurfit paper mill and would be the first major residential development in this area for the past 15 years. The location benefits from this close proximity to the city centre and is convenient to the majority of leading employers in Dublin City. The area has some of the best schools Dublin has to offer and is convenient to nearby UCD Belfield campus.

Connectivity is a key element of the site with Donnybrook and Ballsbridge in close proximity. The site also affords easy access to the M50 and the N11, with frequent bus routes to the city centre and Luas green line.

Full information is available from James Meagher or Finín O’Driscoll who expect the property will appeal to private rented sector (PRS) investors and residential developers alike looking for a ready to go opportunity in a prime residential location.
