Full planning permission has been granted by An Bord Pleanála for our 459 unit residential development at Cooldown Commons, Citywest, Dublin 24 through the Strategic Housing Development planning process.

The granted permission provides for a mixed use scheme consisting of 294 apartments, 123 houses and 42 duplex units, a crèche and resident’s communal space.

Our c. 18.5 acres Cooldown Commons site is located immediately adjacent to the Fortunestown Redline Luas Stop in Citywest, which provides direct light rail access into Dublin City Centre in c. 45 minutes, and c. 500m from the N7 dual carriageway.  The development also includes the completion of the treelined Citywest Avenue which dissects our site in two on an east-west axis.

South of Citywest Avenue will be 294 apartments in seven blocks; six of which extend to 6 storeys in height and a smaller 4 storey block, 32 duplex style houses and 18 three and four bedroom houses on the periphery to reflect existing and proposed adjoining developments.  The apartment buildings are located in a generous parkland setting affording future occupants generous views across high quality landscaped spaces. 

North of Citywest Avenue are 105 three and four bedroom houses with 10 duplex style houses to the northern tip of the site.  The majority of these new homes overlook public open spaces.

The development will also provide convenient direct access to the Fortunestown Redline Luas Stop for adjacent neighbourhoods which will help to create a strong sense of community in the future. 

Construction of Cooldown Commons, which is located in an area of high demand for new homes, is scheduled to commence in 2019.
