14/02/ 18 Development incorporating Ashgrove Terrace announced pending planning approval in the Pembroke Square area of Dundrum Centre 

https://www.independent.ie/business/irish/revealed-fallon-byrne-is-coming-to-dundrum-town-centre-and-this-is-what-it-will-look-like-36602724.html

March 2018 

Response to the Hammerson Ashgrove Terrace planning application

Imagine Dundrum made a formal submission to the County Council’s Planning Department, after studying the full planning application for the refurbishment of 1-5 Ashgrove Terrace on Sandyford Road and the enhancement of ‘Pembroke Square’ behind it.

Our submission, focusing on Ashgrove Terrace, stated that Imagine Dundrum was broadly pleased with the developer’s intention to respect the original character of the buildings and the streetscape and to retain and reuse as much of the original building material as possible. This will fulfil the requirements of its location within the Dundrum crossroads (candidate) Architectural Conservation Area. It also expressed satisfaction with the developer’s plans in relation to sustainability and energy efficiency.

It also made a small number of specific observations: first, on the need to link the building fully to the street by retaining active street entrances (thus revitalising that part of Sandyford Road), and, second, on the desirability of reflecting the original character of the 5-house terrace by rebuilding its historic chimneys and by appropriate design of the planned external awnings.

It is very positive to see the developer approaching the re-use of historic village buildings in this sensitive and appropriate way, and Imagine Dundrum hopes that this bodes well for the future larger-scale developments in Dundrum.
