Europa Motors Site in Blackrock Set For Much Needed Transformation
Blackrock in South County Dublin is steadily going through a construction transformation. Not only are plans well afoot for the re-development of Frascati shopping centre and Enterprise house opposite, but now we are also seeing the residential sector being tackled with a proposed new scheme just after going in for planning in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown county council. The proposed development will replace the well-known Europa garage which has been sitting derelict for a good number of years. The site was purchased back in 2015 by well known property developers New Generation Homes but has since been retained by the new entity, Marlet Ltd.
The proposed scheme is a well thought out design that is sympathetic to its surrounding environment and which will bring life back to the vacant motor site. Team3DDB were tasked with the creation of high end CGIs, verified view montages and a shadow analysis which are being used as part of the planning pack.
Here’s a breakdown of the project:
