Bartra notes the decision of An Bord Pleanála to grant planning permission for our proposed development at Eblana Avenue, Dun Laoghaire. Bartra is currently studying the detail of the Bord’s decision.
Commenting on the decision Mike Flannery CEO said: “This is a pragmatic decision based on Ireland’s need to embrace new tenure types. The Bord recognise that there is a place for co-living within the Irish housing market and we look forward to delivering this new and innovative form of accommodation”.
Ireland needs new models of housing to cater for changing demographics, living habits and employment patterns. Co-living is one such response to these changes.
It is a form of accommodation targeted specifically at single professionals who do not want a single room apartment and has worked well in other cities including London, New York and Vienna.
Batra Capital will proceed with the development and implement all conditions outlined by An Bord Pleanála.
