Plans submitted by OCS Properties to Dublin City Council are proposing the addition of a new 'rooftop destination' to Clery's department store, which will see it host a series of bars, restaurants and entertainment spaces, as well as the creation of a new boutique hotel on Earl Place.
This new rooftop destination will be available for day and night-time use according to the developers. Other changes will see the department stores facade adding a number of 'Juliette' balconies to sit about street level, the staircase being restored to its original condition and the renovation of its famous tea rooms.
The store will see its ground, lower ground and first floors used for retail and its upper office floors being available for letting.

Speaking to the Irish Independent, OCS Properties director Deirdre Foley said: "Our vision for this iconic building at the centre of O'Connell Street is a catalyst to restore the street as our most vibrant shopping and social hub for visitors and locals to enjoy and be proud of."
