Bartra have just received permission from An Bord Pleanala for a 204 No. bed Co-Living Scheme on Eblana Avenue in Dun Laoghaire.

The application was subject to significant media interest but the decision reflects the fact that the proposal compares very favourably to international examples, where it is a successful housing tenure for a specific cohort of the population at a specific time in their working life.

The development will offer an active and engaging living experience for future residents, will provide an attractive and animated building in the heart of Dun Laoghaire and will provide a new pedestrian link between Eblana Avenue and Crofton Square, providing greater permeability in this part of Dun Laoghaire.

Thornton O’Connor Town Planning acted as Planning Advisors on the scheme, which was designed by HKR Architects in conjunction with a large Design Team including CS Consulting, Stephen Diamond Landscape Architects, 3D Design Bureau and JV Tierneys.
