AN AMERICAN developer has submitted a Strategic Housing Application to An Bord Pleanála seeking the construction of 416 new residential units at the former Bailey Gibson site on Dublin’s South Circular Road.

The scheme signals the first important phase of the proposed redevelopment of the former Player Wills and Bailey Gibson site, which was purchased by Hines and APG in December 2018.

If it gets approval phase one will consist of 404 new apartments, two duplex, three triplex apartments and four houses to be built in five blocks ranging in height from two to 16 storeys.

According to the developer all phases will include 10% social  housing in line with statutory requirements.

A central feature of the development will be the high quality shared areas with over

812sqm of shared tenant facilities including two residents lounges, a gymnasium, a managed concierge area, a co-working space and an internal and external communal area and garden.

Managing Director with Hines Ireland Gary Corrigan said: “We have work extensively with Dublin City Council to bring forward detailed building plans for the Player Wills, Bailey Gibson and St Theresa’s Gardens area. Ultimately we will see up to 1360 new homes being built.”
