Planning Granted For Hugely Controversial 19-Storey Building on Dublin 8 Site

Player Wills site plan on South Circular road in Dublin 8 via HINES

Planning permission has been granted for 732 new homes and two public parks at the former Player Wills site in Dublin 8.

Developer Hines got the go-ahead from An Bord Pleanala for the development at the 7.6 acre site.

The proposal includes 492 apartments and 240 ‘co-living‘ units.

The plan faced significant local objection, in particular over the height of the 19-storey buildings.

The developer says the taller buildings will be located at the centre of the site, away from the existing streets and houses.
