Works progressing at Lansdowne Place, Ballsbridge site
Works are progressing on Chartered Land’s Lansdowne Place luxury residential development on the site of the former Berkeley Court Hotel. A new high tower crane was erected pre Christmas onsite, with a further two more tower cranes planned. With the piling works close to completion, work has also started on pouring the basement concrete slabs in preparation for the construction of 215 apartments in a pavilion-style development.
A 6,500 sq. ft. Marketing Suite is currently being built on site on the corner of Lansdowne Road and Shelbourne Road to showcase the luxury apartments. On completion, this 14-metre high structure will provide accommodation over three levels. This will include an entrance lobby and marketing reception area at ground level, a 2-bedroom show apartment at first floor level and a 3-bedroom penthouse apartment at second floor level. The structure also comprises associated terraces, balconies, and a viewing deck at roof level. It will be accessible by a temporary pedestrian entrance on Lansdowne Road.
As part of the overall Lansdowne Place development the impressive mature boundary trees and iron railings along Lansdowne Road dating back to the mid-1800s are being retained, ensuring the continuance of the sylvan setting. These continue the historical legacy of the use of the site as the Trinity College Botanical Gardens from 1806 until the 1960s when The Jurys Hotel and Berkeley Court Hotel were developed.
Working alongside the architects for Lansdowne Place, O’Mahony Pike, JJ Rhatigan & Company is delighted to work on this prestigious development.
