The proposed development includes external and internal amendments to the previously permitted development under DCC Reg. Ref. 3847/16 (ABP Ref. PL29S.248181) as subsequently amended by DCC Refs 2625/18, 2825/18. 2625/18; 2123/19 and 2691/19 together with a change of use of the entire first floor from its permitted retail use / floorspace to office use / floorspace.
In order to facilitate the proposed change of use of the first floor, a number of associated alterations are proposed, to include:
(a) lowering the permitted termination level of the central atrium from second floor level to first floor level and provision of a W/C core at the south-western corner of the floorplan at first floor level;

(c) increasing the number of bicycle parking spaces from a permitted 191 no. spaces at Basement -2 level to 200 no. spaces.
Other alterations include:
(i) an increase of 100mm to the previously permitted Finished Floor Level (FFL) at first floor level (by amending the previous 50mm screed on slab to a 150mm raised access floor above floor slab, to accommodate the proposed office use) together with associated changes to the FFLs at second to sixth floor levels (increasing by approximately 100mm) resulting in raised shoulder parapet heights - from a permitted level of +26,760 to a proposed level of +26,860 at fifth floor level, and from a permitted level of +30,600 to a proposed level of +30,690 at sixth floor level;
(ii) a reduction (of approximately 150mm) to the permitted height of the sixth floor level, resulting in a marginally lower overall height of the permitted building by approx... Signup to read full development description
