5.5.6 Apartment Living

76% of the dwellings completed in Dublin city between 1994 and 2014 were apartments and it is envisaged that the majority of new housing in the city area will be apartments or another typology that facilitates living at sustainable urban densities.

Successful apartment living requires that the scheme must be designed as an integral part of the neighbourhood.

Apartment standards aim to ensure that new apartment developments provide housing with high levels of amenity: within individual apartments, within the overall development including all communal facilities, and by ensuring that suitable social infrastructure and other support facilities are available in the neighbourhood.
