Prussia Street to Receive Much Awaited Student Scheme
A planning application has just been submitted for a large scale 541 student residence as part of a redevelopment plan of the Park Shopping Centre on Prussia Street in Dublin 7. This is one of many student schemes underway or planned throughout the city at present. However, this area of the city in particular is seeing quite a lot of development due to its strategic location to DIT Grangegorman. The Park Shopping Centre scheme adjoins part of the Grangegorman campus which is predicted will accommodate around 10,000 students by the end of 2017 and 20,000 upon completion in 2020. Team3DDB have just finished a series of Verified View Montages and presentation CGI’s for this scheme which are playing a key role in the planning submission.
Here’s the breakdown of the project……
Project Name & Location: Proposed Student Residential/Retail Development.
Location: Nos. 42-45 Prussia Street, Dublin 7
Planning Reference: GSDZ4394/16
Project Details: The proposed development includes the demolition of existing Park Shopping Centre and nos. 42-45 Prussia Street, the creation of portal openings in the former boundary wall and the construction of new District Shopping Centre to comprise part-licensed supermarket, retail/non-retail service units, licensed restaurants and medical clinic. The third element of the development is the construction of student residential accommodation overhead the district centre buildings (15 no. student houses accommodating 105 no. student residential units and 541 bedspaces) in two buildings ranging from 2 to 6 storeys over ground floor commercial north side and 4 to 6 storeys over ground floor commercial south side of a new pedestrian and bicycle street connecting Prussia Street to the Grangegorman SDZ.
The buildings range in height from two-storey over retail (3-storeys) near the existing northern, western and southern boundaries-nearest to Prussia Street-to six-storey over retail (7-storeys) and four-storey over retail (5-storeys) along the new street extending towards the Grangegorman SDZ campus. The northern building comprises the major part of the student residential accommodation with reception and offices at ground floor level and a first floor level podium garden from which 8 houses of student apartments and various student amenity areas (to include a study centre, a recreation centre, a fitness centre and laundry) are directly accessible.
The proposed new street establishes a new urban plaza designed to provide an appropriate contemporary setting for Jameson House located on the opposite side of Prussia Street and requires insertion of a portal connection through a former boundary wall into the development permitted under the approved Grangegorman SDZ Planning Scheme 2012, linking to the permitted Public Realm and Site Infrastructure (DCC Ref. 3373/12). The new street continues through the portal, with 2 student houses accessed from the street. The development includes upper level balconies/terraces addressing Prussia Street and the new street.
