British property firm gets go-ahead to build in Dublin

UK property firm U+I has secured planning permission to build 147 homes in south Dublin.

The group will redevelop two sites, Donnybrook House and "The Avenue" in Sandyford, not only delivering new residential properties but also creating more than 60,000 sq ft of new commercial space, including retail and restaurant units.

Donnnybrook House is a 1970s office building that has been empty for years. The finished site will combine offices and retail outlets, and include a 20,000 sq ft basement gym.

The Avenue site will provide the 147 new apartments in close proximity to two Sandyford Luas stops, the Irish Times reports.

Construction at Donnybrook begins in October with a value on completion of €45m.

Work on The Avenue site will begin in the second quarter of 2017 with value on completion of €55m.
