Major housing development planned for Athlone

Thu, May 18, 2017

Ardent Lakeside, part of the Ardent Group, has submitted a planning application for 69 high-quality homes on a disused site near The Bower in Athlone.

The proposed plan covers 23 two-storey duplexes consisting of two-bedroom units, 18 single-storey apartments comprising eight one-bedroom units and 10 two-bedroom units, and 28 three-bedroom houses. The area has been vacant for 10 years.

Ardent, in association with local engineers MMKDA, Cook Architects, and Scott Landscaping Design, has proposed a design that addresses the challenging topography of the site with tiered landscaping that features seating and community areas. If approved, the development would create around 60 jobs.
