Derryroe, a development company owned by the McSharry and Kennedy families, who also own the Herbert Park Hotel, has been granted a €23.1 million strategic planning application by An Bord Pleanála for a residential development located between Herbert Park and Pembroke Place in Ballsbridge in Dublin 4. The application allows for the construction of 105 apartments comprising 37 one-bedroom units, 66 two-bedroom units, and two three-bedroom units.
