Hyundai Boss Plans 151 Apartments In Deansgrange

An investment vehicle connected to the boss of Hyundai Ireland has applied for planning approval to build a strategic housing development in Deansgrange, south Dublin.

Ditton Investments, which is owned by Hyundai chairman Eugene O’Reilly and lists the car company’s chief executive Stephen Gleeson as a director, has applied for fast-track permission from An Bord Pleanala. The submitted proposal is for 151 apartments at a site near Mooney’s Hyundai dealership on Deansgrange Road.

If given the go-ahead, existing buildings at the site would be demolished to make way for a mixed-use development ranging in height from four to six storeys.

The project will provide studio apartments and one- and two-bedroom units, with a restaurant or cafe and five commercial units that could house a shop and offices.
