Mill Street, Student Housing, Dublin
The development at Mill Street is a mixed-use professionally managed student housing development of 400 rooms in Dublin’s Liberties. The development is a key part of the long term regeneration of the area and it includes retail, restaurant, event and social spaces, a gym and laundry. Part of the challenge of the development was the incorporation of a protected structure at No. 10 Mill Street which was restored as part of the project.
The development includes the creation of Huguenot Square, a significant new public space at its heart. The development has been a catalyst of the regeneration of the Newmarket area. In particular the active use of the new ground floor units on Mill Street have helped to enliven the neighbourhood. The refurbishment involved the opening to the public of the protected structure at No.10 Mill Street. The development provides a new vibrant addition to Mill street.
