The founder and former owner of Dublin's former Tivoli Theatre, Anthony Byrne, has received permission from Dublin City Council to construct a new aparthotel in the capital.
As reported by The Irish Times, the planned aparthotel will be a boutique project that will be built at number three Marlborough Place Square in Dublin and consist of 10 units.
The planned aparthotel has been designed by Douglas Wallace Architects, and will retain the original brick facade of the former industrial building at number three Marlborough Place Square.
The construction of the venue will involve a restoration of the aforementioned brick facade as well as the construction of an upward glazed extension.
Construction is planned to commence as soon as COVID-19-related business restrictions permit it, and is expected to take approximately a year to complete.
"A Very Special Building"
The Irish Times quotes Damian Meehan of Douglas Wallace Architects as saying, "This was a very special building to work with. We are delighted to bring not only this wonderful building back to life, but to play our part as a key catalyst development to unlocking the rejuvenation of the whole of the Marlborough Place Square."
