O'Brien in plans for new office scheme in Dublin 4

Telecoms entrepreneur Denis O'Brien has applied for the third time for planning permission to develop an office block in Donnybrook, Dublin 4. A previous attempt to develop a 26-storey tower on the former Bizquip shop was refused permission in 2005 and a subsequent attempt to develop a six-storey office block was turned down by An Bord Pleanála last year.

Now O'Brien is planning to develop two five-storey buildings on the 0.67 acre site. The scheme would contain seven shops and nearly 6,000sq m of offices.

The last application was turned down because it would be "out of scale and out of character with adjoining properties" and would overshadow rear gardens of adjoining properties.
