The property comprises a regular shaped greenfield development site extending to approx. 3.8 hectares (9.4 acres) with frontage to Fortbarrington Road along the eastern boundary and the new Athy Distributor Road along the southern boundary. The site fronts Tonlegee Lawns and Barnwood Estates along the remaining boundaries. There are no buildings on the lands.
The entire site is zoned Objective C: “New Residential” under the Athy Local Area Plan 2021-2027 (effective from 14th September 2021).
The subject property provides an excellent opportunity to acquire a greenfield residential zoned landbank in an established residential location within walking distance of the Town Centre. The recent Local Area Plan indicates an estimated residential capacity of 133 units for the site (Density @ 35 units per hectare). Given the residential zoning the site would suit developers, investors and AHB’s etc. The new Athy Distributor Road will be of immense benefit to the town and the lands.
The subject site is located on the west side of the Fortbarrington Road, in an edge of town location, approximately 1 km south west of Athy Town Centre. The subject property bounds the route of the new Athy Distributor Road along the southern boundary, for which construction is due to commence in 2022. The surrounding area is generally residential in nature with adjoining estates including Branswood, Tonlegee Lawns, Pairc Bhride and Avondale Drive.
