€38m Hotel Development in pipeline situated adjacent to Dublin Airport
A recent study found that Dublin Airport is one of Europe’s fastest growing transport hubs according to 2016 figures. Passenger numbers at the airport also hit a record high of 25 million in 2015, beating the previous height of 23 million set in 2008. To cope with this rising demand, the DAA recently announced that it will start work on a second runway at the airport, which will cost about €320 million. But how is the city and county going to handle such an influx of visitor numbers? Well, one way is through the development of hotels in and around the airport and city centre. Team3DDB were recently tasked with one such project which will see a 427 no. bedroom hotel soon to be realised in Clonshaugh, adjacent to the airport. As part of the planning application the team produced multiple verified view montages from key viewpoint locations around the site along with a number of high end presentation/marketing CGIs of the scheme. Here’s the full breakdown of the proposed scheme.

Occupancy levels in the capital recently hit their highest rates ever. According to the latest data from hotel industry analysts STR, room occupancy in the capital reached 93.6% in September, highlighting the imbalance between supply and demand in the Dublin hotel market. Projects like this not only go a long way in providing the much needed variety and convenience to passengers and compa
nies that are based on and around the Dublin Airport campus but also provide the much needed additional hotel capacity for the entire Dublin region.
