The Coombe to Receive New 22M ‘ Sheraton Hotel ’
Enabling works are underway to allow for the construction of a new hotel development near the Dean Street/Coombe Junction. These works are due to take 4 months, following which full scale construction activity will take place. Dublin 8 in general is one of those areas currently ripe for regeneration. Not only will the planned DIT move from various premises in the area to the Grangegorman site, free up a lot of properties for re-development but also many residential bubbles in the district are in desperate need of a face-lift. The location itself is optimal with it only 7 minutes’ walk from Stephen’s Green and even less to Temple Bar. Tons of potential at the developer’s fingertips. Team3DDB worked on this new hotel scheme completing a series of verified view montages which were used to secure planning for the site. The four-star hotel is expected to employ up to 200 full time staff in the city and will operate under a franchise license and open as part of Sheraton Hotel group.
