The proposed development is located at 24-28 and 30 Fitzgibbon Street, Dublin 1. It will include refurbishment of the existing building and the construction of a new 2-storey extension (over basement) to the existing building on Fitzgibbon Street, Dublin 1. The building will provide fit for purpose accommodation for Divisional Garda Station. The existing building was built in 1912-13. This end of terrace seven-bay four-storey over exposed basement was in use as police barracks and station until around 2013. It has now been closed for approximately 4 years. The building is not included in the Record of Protected Structures database of the Dublin City Development Plan 2016-2022. It is, however, referenced in NIAH, under Reg. No. 50011038.
The neighbouring building is a two-bay two-storey former house over basement, built c.1860. It recently received minor refurbishment and is currently in use as a Garda public office. The building is not included in the Record of Protected Structures database of the Dublin City Development Plan 2016-2022. It is, however, referenced in NIAH, under Reg. No. 50060436.

Existing two storey over basement building (to be retained and fully refurbished) = 199m². New proposed extension = 782m2. Total area of development currently Option 1=2,604 m2. Options 2 and 3 are being explored details of these in Definitive Project Brief. These may become the chosen option.
