Ladas Property Company, which is part of the Comer Group, has appealed to An Bord Pleanála to overturn Dublin City Council's decision to reject the company's proposal to demolish a vacant used car dealership building at Kearns Place in Old Kilmainham, Dublin, and construct a six-storey hotel in its place.
The proposed hotel would include 80 bedrooms, a restaurant and a rooftop café.
Dublin City Council said that the proposed hotel would be "overly dominant" and "would appear overbearing and incongruous on the streetscape", as reported by The Irish Times.
A ruling on Ladas Property Company's appeal is due by July 7.
