FAC Submit SHD Planning Application in Dublin’s Markets Area to An Bord Pleanála


FAC has submitted an SHD planning application to An Bord Pleanála for a residential project in Dublin City Centre on behalf of The Fruitmarket Partnership which will be a key driver for urban regeneration in the north west city core at Mary’s Lane, Halston Street, Little Green Street and St. Michan’s Park, Dublin 7.

The development proposal designed by Kelly and Cogan Architects with Kelliher Miller Architects, is based on the Shared Accommodation concept providing co-living apartment clusters in 4 blocks ranging from 5 to 14 storeys. The blocks will accommodate shared amenity spaces, services and co-working areas, a gym, workshops and studio spaces for residents.  The entire scheme provides 360 bedrooms in 61 units, giving up to 506 bedspaces.

The development will form a new urban edge to Mary’s Lane and includes a café facing out towards the urban realm opposite the City Fruit and Vegetable Market (to become a visitor destination) and also present a new boundary to the west side of St. Michan’s Park.  Roost will operate and manage the Shared Accommodation/Co-Living community.

FAC managed the planning application process including consultations with Dublin City Council and An Bord Pleanála and prepared the following:

  • Planning Report and Statement of Consistency;
  • Height Justification Report;
  • EIAR Screening Report;
  • Shared Accommodation Feasibility Report;
  • Operational Management Plan;
  • Socio-economic impact Report; and
  • Web site design and management


Details of the proposed development are available at https://marketsshd.com/
