€28M SHD Planning Granted – Student Accomodation – Sandyford
Swedish student accommodation provider Prime Living have received planning permission from An Bord Pleanala to build a strategic housing development on Carmanhall Road, Sandyford Industrial Estate, Dublin 18
Prime Living will develop a student complex with 817 bed spaces worth €28M. The site is located about 3km from UCD and just a five-minute walk from two Luas stations, affording easy access to Trinity College, RCSI and DIT.
The 1.05 hectares site will also include a management office and gym located at ground floor level, and 21 no. communal spaces, including movie room, study and hang-out spaces across all levels of the building
This development highlights the continued appetite among local and international operators for purpose-built student accommodation in Dublin as a result of the capital’s well-publicised housing shortage.
3D Design Bureau developed several verified view montages, architectural CGIs and BRE daylight analysis reports which assisted Prime Living to meet the planning authorities’ requirements.
