Blakes and Esmonde Motors site, Stillorgan, Dublin

Mixed use development consisting of of 151 student accommodation units (548 beds), 103 apartments, retail /café units, co working office space and a community sports hall.


The site of circa 3.3 acres is located in the centre of Stillorgan adjoining on a quality bus corridor (QBC) along the N11 at Stillorgan. The site is within 1 km of UCD Belfield Campus Irelands largest university. The proposed development will deliver much needed student accommodation and residential housing units together  with ancillary commercial development on a derelict brownfield site which will enhance Stillorgan village.

 A key requirement for the design of the development was that it responded appropriately to its location while respecting the amenity and character of the neighbouring streets. As such the development proposal includes retail and café units with outdoor terrace, co-working office space, community sports hall, a large civic space, public accessible park and public realm works.
