Lidl Ireland has announced that it has lodged plans to build 60 apartments alongside its proposed store in Dublin 12.
The discounter recently hosted two community information evenings, to brief local residents, community leaders and stakeholders on its plans for a mixed-use development and new Lidl store on Herberton Road.
Lidl representatives and members of the design team took the time to talk to the local community and answer a range of questions on topics such as traffic impact, parking, and the sustainability credentials of the project.
Vincent Cronolly, regional property director, commented, “We are pleased to bring forward and lodge planning for this ambitious project on Herberton Road.
“We had a lot of constructive engagement with the local community and are very thankful to them for taking the time to engage with us.”
The New Development
As well as the proposed 60 new apartments, the new development is set to include a spacious sales floor, as well as other retail spaces for use as a potential cafe and pharmacy.
“We do believe that the mixed-use aspect of this scheme, with 60 apartments included, makes very good use of the site available,” Cronolly said.
“We hope to bring significant local investment, new jobs, and our market-leading quality and value to the community around Herberton Road for many years to come.”
Built to the highest environmental standards, the proposed store will also have EV-charging points, a green roof and solar panels, the company noted.
The development will bring up to €15 million in local investment to the community, as well as creating 60 jobs at Lidl, which the retailer hopes will be welcomed by the community.
