U+I has secured planning permission for the redevelopment of two sites in Dublin, Donnybrook House in Dublin 4 and ‘The Avenue, Sandyford’ (formerly known as the Avid Building) in South County Dublin.
The two developments combined will deliver up to 147 new homes, over 60,000 sq. ft. of new commercial space, as well as retail and restaurant space, providing much needed homes, offices and leisure facilities for the city. Construction at Donnybrook House will begin in October 2016 with an end value of €45 million whilst work will begin on The Avenue site in Q2 2017 with an end value of €55 million.
Originally purchased by U+I in 2014, Donnybrook House is a prominently located 1970’s office building in Dublin 4 that has been empty for a number of years. U+I has secured planning permission for a complete refurbishment of the building and conversion of the ground floor offices that will see the building comprehensively remodelled and brought back to life. The redevelopment will provide 45,000 sq. ft. of offices, 2,000 sq. ft. of retail, 4,000 sq. ft. of restaurants and a basement gym of 20,000 sq. ft.
