This impressive student accommodation project for Punches Cross Student Village will consist of 324 students housed in a cluster, with 10 one bed apartments, 20 two bed apartments and two three bed apartments.

The development will cover an area over 11,000 square metres at a development site that has been empty for over ten years. Two small ancillary commercial units as part of the student services will also be developed for this project.

The team is led by Gary Lawlor of Lawlor Burns & Associates with lead design by Neil Fanning of OCA Architects and Pierce McGann providing civil structural engineering, Ross Bryant JBA Environmental Engineers, Planning Consultants Henk Van Der Kamp and Rob Nowlan of RW Nowlan and Associates. Urban design / landscaping is provided by Nic De Jong and quantity surveying / cost management by Brian O’Sullivan of Lawlor Burns and Associates.

Gary Lawlor said “It has been a very interesting experience for our team working through the new strategic housing fast track planning system, and we would thank the LCCC planning department for the engagement a guidance a local level prior to meeting An Bord Pleanala. This project will see the development of a state of the art apartment building that will provide much needed accommodation in the area for students of the Mary Immaculate Teacher training college, which located 300 metres from the site.”

The team hope to lodge the application by the end of March 2019 on behalf of Cloncarragh Developments.
