Finally, BM Durkan has recently received planning permission for “Black Church View” on Mountjoy Street, Dublin 7. This exciting, shared accommodation project comprises 114 shared accommodation units, a café, gym, co-working space and indoor and outdoor recreation and amenity spaces at Mountjoy Street, Dublin 7.

The Mountjoy Street proposal, which will be starting on site shortly will bring a state-of-the-art shared accommodation development to the city. This smart and modern way of living concentrates on community and sharing in a secure environment. The focus of this development is on community and technology, allowing for modern rental experience along with affordability.

Each floor is seen as a single community and private resident rooms feed into shared residential communal facilities. Apartment sizes in the Mountjoy Street development will be well in excess of the minimum floor area required under the current planning regulations.

Located adjacent to the new TU Grangegorman Campus and just a five-minute walk to O’Connell Street and within easy reach of the “Silicon Docks”, the location is ideally suited to people who want state of the art technology and the convenience of the concierge service and array of amenities all under one roof. The site is also served by excellent transport links with the Luas and multiple bus routes running past the proposed development.

We are working on planning applications for some very exciting new developments, which will be coming soon – Watch this space!!
