Plans are to be lodged shortly with An Bord Pleanála for more than 800 fast-track residential units at Milltown Park in Ranelagh and on Dublin’s northside in Clontarf.

The bulk of the units will be build-to-rent apartments and Sandford Living Ltd, is seeking permission to construct 604 apartments and duplex units at Milltown Park, south east of Ranelagh village. 

The scheme – which could reach 12 storeys in height – comprises 88 studios, 262 one-bed units, 242 two-bed units and 12 three-bed units.

The proposal also includes an additional 67 build-to-sell apartments and duplex units.

The development would involve the demolition of existing structures on the site including Milltown Park House.

The scheme is a scaled down version of the 714 build-to-rent and 131 build-to -sell proposal that Sandford Living Ltd initially mooted for the site last year as part of pre-planning consultations with the planning board.

Scheme

The initial scheme included a 13-storey landmark building and Dublin City Council expressed concern over the visual impact of the tall building.

In respect of plans for Clontarf, Savona Ltd is seeking fast-track planning under for 131 build-to-rent residential units at Redcourt, Seafield Road East, Clontarf.

The scheme is made up of 73 two-bedroom apartments, 34 one-bed units and 16 studios.

The site is located on the northern side of Seafield Road East, a tree-lined residential street in Clontarf, which is accessed off Vernon Avenue to the west and the Clontarf Road to the east.

The scheme – in common with the Milltown Park proposal –would have a range of facilities for the tenants including a gym, a multipurpose room and event room.

Residents would also have use of a roof top garden at the Redcourt scheme. 

The Clontarf developers initially proposed a 129-unit scheme and the appeals board last December said that the plan required further consideration or amendment.
