Formerly the Zanzibar bar and nightclub, the site forms part of the historical fabric of the Quays which overtime had fallen into disrepair and lay vacant for a number of years. Prior to commencement it was the only unused premises on Ormond Quay Lower, between the Millennium Bridge and Ha’penny Bridge. The site extends from Ormond Quay Lower to the South and Strand Street Great to the North and is bounded to the East and West by existing structures. The project was completed in November 2020, comprising a ‘new build’ of 2 x 6/7 storey blocks providing 160 Unit Aparthotel along with the refurbishment of the existing three properties at 34-37 Ormond Quay, Georgian Structures overlooking the river Liffey Quays. An existing archway provides access from the Quays will be utilized as the main entry point to a spectacular foyer serving a new 160 Bedroom Aparthotel which will extend and provide a much-required facelift to Strand Street Great. Completion of the project is due July 2020. The substructure involved installation of 222 Continuous Flight Auger (CFA) piles. The superstructure comprised a reinforced concrete frame with flat slab floors. GDCL were responsible for all civil and structural design working as part of multi-disciplinary design & build team.
