The site is, correct me if I’m wrong, going to be the location for a new purpose-built criminal courts complex, leaving the Four Courts for purely civil matters. No designs have been put forward and I’m not even sure if it’s been put out for tender.
Interestingly, a major site just up the road, directly across from the Department of Defence has planning permission in for a major development.
There are a couple of nice old derelict buildings on the site, all of which appear to be protected. They aren’t part of St Bricin’s Hospital but border on to it.
From what I can recall, the new development will consist chiefly of the by now ubiquitous six to seven storey apartment blocks.
A creche and a few other facilities are promised to soften it for Dublin City Council.
Between this and the demolition/redevelopment of O’Devaney Gardens confirmed over the past few days, there is going to be a lot of construction going on in this neck of the woods in the years to come.
