Galway Bay fm Newsroom – An appeal has been filed against a major mixed-use development proposal at City North Business Park on Tuam Road.
The plans would include several commercial office blocks and more than 300 residential units, as well as a 150-bed hotel and retail units.
The development would be a mixed-use project on a 6.8 hectare site.
It would be spread over 13 development blocks with a height of 2 to 8 floors and would involve an upgrade of the existing N83 access junction to the site.
There would be 9 residential unit blocks, which would provide a total of 309 apartments – mostly one, two and three-bed units, with a handful of four-bed apartments and studios.
The plans also include residential amenities, such as laundry rooms, a gym, a collaborative workspace and workshops, as well as a nursery with outdoor play areas.
There would be a cultural center included on the site for facilities such as a community cafe, exhibition space, workshop and party rooms, meeting spaces and a lounge for residents.
Also included would be four commercial office buildings ranging in height from 4 to 5 floors and an 8-story, 150-bed hotel with 72 apartments, as well as a leisure center and spa with indoor pool and gym.
There would also be approximately 1,080 mÂ². ground floor commercial units included in the development; and parking spaces for nearly 800 cars, as well as over 1,100 bicycle parking spaces.
The plans, led by Strategic Land Investments LTD, received the green light from planners last month subject to 44 conditions.
It is now the subject of a third party appeal to An Bord PleanÃ¡la.
The council is due to render its decision in January
