Be interesting to see if those apartments in douglas will add to the chaos that is the traffic situation there. Who designs these road systems?
Yeah I can’t see 11 apartments and 2 town-houses really adding to the Douglas traffic fiasco. The new Clayton Love developed 8-storey hotel may have more of a substantial impact. The proposed road as part of the 60m euro redeveloped Douglas Village S.C. by Canmount Investments (Clayton Love again) and designed by Wilson Architecture is a much need addition to traffic management in the suburb.
– redeveloped Shopping Centre proposal for Douglas Village
Clayton Love was holding back on this development to assess the impact of Mahon Point S.C. nearby – however, traders at Douglas Court S.C. are reporting that MP has had little effect on business, as the majority of trade is local in and around Douglas, Rochestown, Passage West, Grange and Donnybrook etc.
Permission is in place for the redevelopment – perhaps this news will encourage Canmount to proceed with the shopping centre plans. However I am told that the hotel is for the time being, their priority, in Douglas.
