Planning News: West Quad and Lower House

This week has seen lots of progress on the planning side of the Grangegorman Project as the West Quad design was submitted to Dublin City Council for planning permission yesterday.

This new building for TU Dublin will become the new home for the College of Business and the School of Languages and Law, replacing facilities at Aungier Street, and will also host the conferring hall for the university. Heneghan Peng Architects are the design team lead for the project.

In further planning news, we received planning permission to bring our oldest site building, the Lower House, back into use for TU Dublin. This ambitious recovery project aims to be completed for September 2020.

The building’s new uses will include music practice rooms, student union workspace, a food hall, sports rooms, a dance studio and general student support services. FKP Architects are leading the multi-disciplinary design team on the project.
