Funny that you see it as clearly aimed at sharing professionals? Why? To me, the layouts are clearly for families, with the master ensuite bedroom for the parents and the smaller bedroom for the kids. I'm actually moving in as a family and I've seen lots of families last Saturday!

The layouts reflect that. They could be sold in the future individually as private dwellings with a MC to maintain common areas.
Sorry I don't understand your reply. Residential appartments does not necessarily mean it's for sharing professionals?

I didn't see any families at the viewing, but it was in the evening.
The layouts could definitely work as a family home as you say. But to me, it does look like it's aimed at working professionals. The look of the complex is very corporate looking.

I don't see many amenities aimed at kids?

24 hour gym with yoga studio
Hot desk use
Meeting room use
Private cinema
Members-only events
CCTV at all entrances
Lounge and club room
Package receiving service

I suppose during the brighter months plenty to keep the kids occupied across the road in the park.

True that there are no amenities aimed at kids (although the lion king was being shown in the cinema during the viewing... and there were a bunch of kids watching) but I dont see why having kids would prevent you from enjoying the facilities in the building. I have a daughter but will be happy to use the working space (I'm freelance), the gym, cinema etc.
I don't see the building as being corporate. Funny how we see things differently!

Can't think of many apartment blocks that would have specific amenities for children, but I stand to be corrected!

I was going to say - it’s just an apartment complex - not designed for children but not not designed for them

You've never seen a playground in an apartment complex? I know the nearby New Priory apartments certainly have one and it's also right across the road from the park.

It's hardly reaching for the stars to expect developers to consider they might have families. I'm being critical of the developers here, not people wanting to live there.

In a development this size, they should be made put in amenities and onsite child care options. It's a complete joke that developments of this scale are allowed without these essentials.

Not sure if they're available yet? Have you tried putting an address into the website?

If you search manually on the Eircode map, the blocks appear but they don’t seem to line up with the “Block 32” naming etc.
