New Plans for Punches Cross Student Village

Lawlor Burns & Associates are pleased to announce that a fresh planning application has been lodged to An Bord Pleanala for the student accommodation for Punches Cross Student Village in Limerick on behalf of their client Cloncaragh Developments.

The application has been lodged under the SHD fast track planning legislation. This proposed student village will provide 100 apartments accommodating over 300 students with the facility designed to meet the needs of those studying at Mary Immaculate College, the University of Limerick (UL) and the Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT).

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.

Gary Lawlor said “The Punches Cross Student Village project will transform and regenerate a vacant site in Limerick, which has lain idle for 20 years. It will also be helping to address Limerick’s serious student accommodation and housing needs in the city”.
