Ireland: Dublin City Council has granted planning permission for a 97-bedroom co-living project in the Rathmines neighbourhood.

Applicant Blondie Issuer DAC applied for planning permission for 110 units by the change of use of Rathmines House from office use to accommodation and adding three floors that it hoped would create a seven-storey building.

But the council has ordered the removal of one floor with 13 bedrooms from the development on 143-149 Rathmines Road Lower.

The council ordered the removal of the floor in the interests of proper planning and to safeguard the visual and residential amenities of the area and of future occupants.

The individual units vary in size with shared kitchen, dining and living communal facilities on each floor level.

The ground floor will feature a reception, gymnasium, residents' lounge and launderette.

Planning consultants for the applicants, Manahan Planners, said the conversion and expansion of the disused office building for a shared accommodation development will create a high quality residential development and contribute positively to the development of the Rathmines area.
