BMD to introduce 4 great developments

Somerton, Davitt Road, Pim Street and Mountjoy Street – all names you will become familiar with as developer Brian M Durkan Ltd has been granted planning permission for all four and building plans are well under way.

The first, Somerton will see residents of Ballyboden, Rathfarnham, Dublin 14 nestle into a beautifully landscaped development consisting of 12 apartments across two 3 storey blocks. The site is ideally located close to the M50, Dundrum Town Centre, Nutgrove Shopping Centre, Marley and St. Enda’s parks and keen golfers will be delighted with its proximity to The Grange and Edmondstown Golf Clubs.

The second and very exciting new development is located on lands at the former Dulux paint factory site on Davitt Road, Drimnagh, Dublin 12. This is a Strategic Housing development consisting of 265 high quality one and two bedroom apartments spread across four blocks ranging from three to seven storeys. It will also contain a wide range of amenities including a retail/café unit, a resident’s gym, 119 car parking spaces, electric car chargers, internal semi-public paths, public and private open spaces and all communal facilities including refuse and bike parking.

Dublin City will be home to site number three and will see a development of 29 units consisting of 11 studio apartments, 12 one bed apartments and 6 two bed apartments on Pim Street, Dublin 8. The site allows for 29 sheltered bicycle parking spaces, 15 visitor bicycle parking spaces and bin storage at surface level, along with elegant landscaping works. But the real bonus for city dwellers of this development is the private balcony and roof garden areas overlooking Dublin.

Last but not least, Durkan has submitted plans in to introduce a “Build to Rent development” to Mountjoy Street, Dublin 7. What makes this particular development really special is its proposal for shared accommodation, also known as co-living, a relatively new concept to our property market.
