Irish Independent - Business Week - - APPOINTMENTS - Ron­ald Quin­lan

The site of the for­mer Clas­sic Cin­ema on Dublin’s Harold’s Cross Road has been brought to the mar­ket by agent Knight Frank for a guide price in ex­cess of €6m.

Ex­tend­ing to 0.507 hectares

(1.25 acres), the land rep­re­sents a sig­nif­i­cant de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­nity in an es­tab­lished res­i­den­tial lo­ca­tion ad­join­ing Harold’s Cross Vil­lage and within easy ac­cess of Dublin city cen­tre. The site is well-served by a num­ber of Dublin Bus routes.

Un­der the Dublin City De­vel­op­ment Plan (2016-2022), the en­tire site is zoned Ob­jec­tive Z4 — ‘To pro­vide for and im­prove mixed-ser­vices fa­cil­i­ties. Res­i­den­tial, ho­tel, shop (dis­trict) and shop (neigh­bour­hood) are all per­mit­ted uses in prin­ci­ple among many other high value uses.

Ar­chi­tects O’Ma­hony Pike have pre­pared a fea­si­bil­ity study for the site which pro­vides for a res­i­den­tial scheme of 76 apart­ments. The scheme in­cludes am­ple open space and com­ple­men­tary re­tail space.

The ma­jor­ity of the blocks within the pro­posed scheme range in height from two to four storeys with a small, five-storey el­e­ment fronting Harold’s Cross Road.

The sub­ject site is lo­cated 2.2km south of St Stephen’s Green and ad­joins Harold’s Cross Vil­lage, which ben­e­fits from many well-re­garded eater­ies such as Craft, Beck­ett & Bull, May­field Restau­rant and cof­fee shops such as Five Points and Nosh Café in Harold’s Cross Park.

The vil­lages of Rath­gar, Terenure and Rath­mines are also close by with a wide sec­tion of lo­cal ameni­ties, cafés, res­tau­rants and pubs on of­fer.
