Five storey apartment development planned for Northend Centre
Plans have been drawn up for a new five storey apartment development opposite St Nicholas’ Church.
Michael Murtagh has served notice of his intention to apply for planning permission for the development on lands formerly known as the Northend Centre, fronting on to Patrick Street. This includes buildings 99 and 100 which front onto Bridge Street and Church Street.
The proposed development would see the demolition of the existing buildings and the removal of their associated foundations from the site.
In their place a mixed-use residential and commercial development would be built over five floors comprising a total of 22 apartments and two commercial retail units. They would include 18 one bed apartments and 4 two bed apartments, as well as two ground floor commercial/retail units each comprising 55sqm with associated shop fronts onto Church Street.
There would also be a pedestrian entrance onto Patrick Street with associated bin storage and bicycle storage areas located at ground floor level. A roof top garden/communal area for residents has also been proposed which would include hard and soft landscape works within the site which includes public lighting, public seating and planting.
There would also be associated site works to facilitate site drainage and foul networks for connection to the existing foul, storm and public water networks.
The development site is located within the designated Clanbrassil Street Architectural Conservation Area (ACA) as defined under the Dundalk and Environs Development Plan (2009-2015; as extended).
A planning application for the development is set to go before the council shortly.
