An Bord Pleanála has granted permission for the next phase, which will include 139 apartments in a managed complex. The facilities will include a concierge service, gym, residents lounges and extensive new roof gardens.
Gannon Homes invested heavily before the property crash in delivering the new town centre and the infrastructure for the residential community between the Malahide Road and Baldoyle.
Clongriffin has its own Dart station – the journey to Connolly Station takes about 17minutes – as well as a 500-space park-and-ride facility under the town square. There is also a 700-space, multistorey car park.
The design of the apartment block by Conroy Crowe Kelly Architects and Urban Designers provides for a 16-storey glass and metal tower rising over Station Square and flanking the stepped pedestrian street up to the Dart station. A landscaped entrance courtyard will be surrounded by brick apartment buildings accessed in a Continental style from the main square.
The planned apartment block will have resident lounges on the seventh floor opening on to an extensive roof garden.
