For­mer tram­yards site in Dalkey on the mar­ket as a de­vel­op­ment site guid­ing €2m

Irish Independent - Business Week - - COMMERCIAL PROPERTY - PETER FLANA­GAN

CBRE is to seek €2m for a de­vel­op­ment site in south Dublin.

The bro­ker has been re­tained to sell what it calls a “land­mark de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­nity ex­tend­ing to ap­prox­i­mately 0.23 hectares (0.58 acre) on Cas­tle Street in Dalkey.

The prop­erty will be sold by way of ten­der.

The for­mer Tram­yard in Dalkey is cur­rently zoned “NC” – Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre – which al­lows uses “to pro­tect, pro­vide and/or im­prove mixed-use neigh­bour­hood cen­tre fa­cil­i­ties” un­der the DLR (Dun Laoghaire-Rath­down) De­vel­op­ment Plan 2010 to 2016”.

The prop­erty pre­vi­ously had full plan­ning per­mis­sion – ref­er­ence num­ber D06A/0910 - for the de­mo­li­tion of the ex­ist­ing build­ings on site and the de­vel­op­ment of 23 apart­ments and an­cil­lary re­tail space at ground f loor. This plan­ning has now ex­pired.

CBRE’s Peter Gar­ri­gan, who is man­ag­ing the sale, com­mented: “This rare op­por­tu­nity al­lows in­ter­ested par­ties to de­velop and in­cor­po­rate a mixed use scheme, sub­ject to plan­ning per­mis­sion, in the heart of Dalkey vil­lage.

“The pre­vi­ous plan­ning per­mis­sion has since lapsed how­ever the pos­i­tive plan­ning his­tory demon­strates the ca­pac­ity of the site which al­lowed a sym­pa­thet­i­cally de­signed de­vel­op­ment to sit along­side the his­toric thor­ough­fare of Cas­tle Street.”

The prop­erty is lo­cated just off Dalkey’s main re­tail thor­ough­fare, Cas­tle Street. It is about 13km south of Dublin city cen­tre.

The vil­lage boasts an ar­ray of ameni­ties and fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing art gal­leries, book­shops, del­i­catessens, and a va­ri­ety of pubs, restau­rants, cafés, wine shops and numer­ous other spe­cialty shops. The prop­erty is sur­rounded by a host of the likes of Killiney Hill and Quarry, Sor­rento Park, Dalkey Hill, Dalkey Cas­tle and beaches at Sandy­cove and Killiney.
