Dublin hotel plan haunted by old graves
The developers of a planned 343 unit aparthotel on the site of a Keelings owned fresh fruit and veg distribution depot in Dublin are facing a couple of potential ‘banana skins’ over the plan. LMS Investments is intending that apart-hotel firm, Staycity operate the planned seven-story apart-hotel at Dublin’s Little Mary Street. The site is owned by fruit and veg distributors and producers, Keelings and director, William Keeling has provided his written consent for the plans to be lodged. A report lodged with the application states that the aparthotel will be operated by Staycity. The documentation states that Staycity was established in Dublin in 2004 and currently operates 2,000 rooms in Ireland, the UK and France with plans to increase the number to 5,000.
