The Archdiicese of Dublin sold ALL the land to the GAA for 95 million.
The GAA then sold HALF the land, that cost them 47.5 million for 105 million.
Thats a GAA profit of 52.5 million and they still owned half the land.
If the GAA sold HALF for 105 million, then it means the land could have been worth 210 million.
But the ARCHDIOCESE sold for 95 million what was potentially worth 210 million?
Thats a church LOSS of 115 million?
Who were the GAA and the Archdiocese of Dublin negotiators?
Who in the archdiocese finally signed off on the 95 million?
Was it Diarmuid Martin?
Update on the development plans for the Clonliffe College site
Thu, Jul 9, 2020 The Green Party
If you didn’t get to make the briefing from Hines Ireland today on the developments planned for the Clonliffe College site please find a summary of the key points below.
Please note that this is an early stage plan. Lots of positives in the plan but also elements that we feel could be better.
The shortage of good quality housing in the city has not gone away so it is incumbent on us all to make sure the best possible use is made of the site.
If you have any thoughts on the below please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Neasa Hourigan TD, Cllr. Janet Horner or Cllr. Darcy Lonergan
Roughly half of the site is being developed by Hines for residential use (circa 7 hectares), half by the GAA (circa 5 hectares).
In addition to the hotel the GAA plan to develop a sporting ground comprising a Clubhouse and two pitches.
A masterplan for the Clonliffe lands can be found here
The latest plan contains 1,650 apartments broken down as follows:
30% one bedroom apartments
35% two bedroom apartments
5% three bedroom apartments
There will be no co-living on the site i.e. all units will have own kitchen
No apartments will be sold by the developers:
80% will be private rental
10% will be affordable rental
10% will be acquired by the council under Part V for social housing
The buildings will be mainly 2 to 10 storeys
Two of the buildings are planned to be 13-15 storeys.
There’s a focus on keeping the existing trees and adding more trees.
A dog park is planned
There will be a riverside walk which will be part of a route that surrounds development
Green public open spaces.
Allotments are being considered.
Pitches – will be open to schools.
Will provide a large crèche (circa 5,000 sq ft).
There will be an option for a bridge over the Tolka near the Tolka park.
Still a lot of detail to work out on that with Dublin City Council.
Lands are currently zoned:
Z12 – zoned (residential with 20% public access)
Z9 – zoned along the banks of Tolka
Lodge planning as a Strategic Housing Development with An Bord Pleanála (APB) at the start of 2021.
While Dublin City Council are involved in the ABP application the application will not go through the typical Dublin City Council planning process
2023 – first residents to planned to move in
All complete 2026
DIARMUID MARTIN’S APARTMENT IN CLONTARF?
How is it that Diarmuid Martin moved out of archbishop’s house and has been living in a church owned apartment in Clontarf, Dublin. 3?
Was a large amount of money spend on ABs house to house Dermo, including a Euro 50,000 kitchen because he enjoys cooking?
Was the move to Clontarf a pre retirement strike?
Is that going to be his Dublin base in the future?
Will his successor live in ABs House?
IS THIS PAUL CALLAN’S HOUSE?
