Planning Granted for €18.5m Hotel Scheme on Chancery Street
Planning has just been granted for a 249 room hotel development at River House on Chancery Street, Dublin 7. For those of you old enough to remember, you’ll know that this is the site where the old motor tax office used to be located. This area of the city in particular is currently going through somewhat of a gentrification process most notably in Smithfield just a stone’s throw away. The main aim for the rejuvenation of Smithfield is the creation of a bustling cultural quarter which will make the district a more attractive proposition for visitors and natives alike. So it’s no surprise to see this application being lodged despite a previously approved office development attached to the site.
Right on the Luas line, just set back from the Liffey, the proposed hotel will be less than a 10min walk to the likes of Temple Bar. With it’s location and transport links this hotel seems like a no brainer providing it receives planning. Planning was lodged last week and it already appears to be receiving a positive response from locals who would dearly love to see the current eye sore of the derelict building transformed.
Here’s a closer look at the project in question:
