Dublin Chamber has welcomed the approval of planning for the ‘Connolly Quarter’ development, which will include 741 new apartments.

An Bord Pleanala announced today that it has granted planning permission - under the fast-track Strategic Housing Development scheme – for the mixed-use scheme, which will also include offices, a hotel and retail units.
Dublin Chamber said the proposed development is “absolutely appropriate” for the Connolly site, given its location in the heart of the city centre and close proximity to good public transport links.

According to Dublin Chamber’s Head of Communications Graeme McQueen: “The Connolly Quarter development is a perfect example of the kind of smart city planning that is badly needed in Dublin. Sites like this, positioned within the heart of the city and close to good public transport connections, are ripe for high density development. There is big demand for accommodation in the centre of Dublin, which this development will help to meet. If we’re serious about reducing congestion and increasing density in Dublin then it is vital that people have the ability to live closer to where they work.”
