More Student Accommodation in the Pipeline for Dublin!
The following news is sure to be welcomed by the students around Dublin city as rents continue to cripple most. Team3DDB have yet again completed another series of high quality CGIs and accurate verified view montages for another student accommodation scheme in Dublin city centre. Ziggurat, a UK student accommodation provider has bought a number of key sites in Dublin’s north city centre as part of a €400 million Irish expansion plan. One piece of this €400M jigsaw puzzle includes the acquisition a site at Dominick Street Upper in which they plan to demolish an existing vacant commercial building and resurrect a student living space. The key thing about this scheme, not to mention the foresight of Ziggurat, is that the proposed new Luas Cross City runs right outside the proposed new scheme!. The proposed development has been lodged for planning and is pending a decision.
