State’s tallest building gets planning go-ahead
Planning permission has been granted for a 32-storey building in Dublin.
The building, which will be the Stateâ€™s tallest, is part of a development planned by the Office of Public Works near Heuston Station at Kilmainham in Dublin.
An Board PleanÃ¡la gave the go-ahead for the developement this morning.
The proposed development includes 197 residential units, offices, a museum building, a health club, restaurants, a pub, a childcare facility, an educational facility and an observation desk.
The lowest three floors of the 32-storey building will be used as a restaurant while 28 floors are for residential use. There will also be a public observation desk on the top floor.
At its highest point the building will be 140.55m above sea-level.
The board ruled against its own inspector and passed the development by 5 votes to 2. It said the high quality of the design involved was a factor in the decision.
