Irish developer Glenkerrin has won planning permission for a E600m (£452m) redevelopment of the Vetinary College site in the Ballsbridge area of Dublin.
The Number One Ballsbridge scheme, to the south-east of Dublin, will now be developed into a 430,000 sq ft mixed-use scheme.
The company, run by managing director Ray Grehan, paid E171m (£129m) for the 2.2-acre site in 2005.
The scheme, designed by HKR Architects, will be developed into 109-luxury apartments, 200,000 sq ft of offices and 30,000 sq ft of shops.
There will be a 15-storey residential tower with an internal orangery overlooking a square, a three office buildings.
The scheme is next to the Jury’s site owned by developer Sean Dunne, who is proposing a mixed-use development with a 37-storey tower.
Glenkerrin’s application comes two months after councillors rejected a local area plan which had suggested allowing high-rise development of up to 22-storeys.
The plans now face the possibility of going before An Bord Pleanála (The Planning Board), the Irish statutory planning appeals body.
