it follows Walls Construction’s accelerated accommodation plans with An Bord Pleanála to demolish the three-storey Rosemount House headquarters at Northern Cross, Malahide Road in Dublin 17.

In its place, Walls Construction is looking to build a €77 million nine-storey mixed-use scheme consisting of 176 apartments.

The program includes 72 one-bed apartments, 57 two-bed apartments and 47 three-bed apartments.

The program also includes 1,050 square meters of office space on the ground floor which will house the construction company’s new headquarters.

Walls is currently building Marlet Property Group’s College Square and Grand Canal Harbor project in Dublin city center and its Hamilton Gardens project in Cabra is nearing completion.
