The Student Housing Company and Bennett Construction have launched the first of three student residences in Dublin. Designed by O’Mahony Pike Architects, Binary Hub is Dublin’s largest purpose built student accommodation development. The site on Roe’s Lane, Bonham Street was acquired in November 2014, and is one of many projects that Bennett Construction is currently working on in the city. Opening in September 2016, Binary Hub will house 471 students in luxury private apartments. With student accommodation within the city in high demand, the new residence is set to ease pressure on Dublin’s student housing shortage and bring The Student Housing Company’s award-winning service to the area.
Comprising of ‘cluster apartments’ with between three and eight bedrooms, this new development set in the heart of Dublin is only a 20-minute walk from Trinity College, and just a six-minute walk from the National College of Art and Design. The finished building offers students stylish, safe and convenient accommodation with laundry facilities, an on-site gym, study room, bike storage, fast Wi-Fi, an expansive common room, landscaped gardens and 24-hour maintenance and security support, all of which are included in the monthly rent.
Every fully-furnished bedroom has an ensuite shower room, small double bed and desk area, while the fully fitted kitchen and living space in each apartment provides students with a place to unwind and socialise.
In addition to the Binary Hub, two recently acquired sites in Dublin, Dorset Street (to house 447 students) designed by Henry J Lyons Architects and Gardiner Lane (to house 376), are planned to open across 2017 and 2018, providing an additional 821 student beds.
