Dublin residents may soon be able to rent a slice of brewery history. Property development group Ballymore recently submitted plans to transform part of the renowned St. James’s Gate brewery into over 300 apartments.
The developer group is partnering with Guinness, owned by spirits conglomerate Diageo, to bring the planned apartment units to life, according to a press release. The brewery’s neighborhood is on-track to become the bustling “Guinness Quarter” in Dublin 8, a neighborhood focused on close-knit community, travel, innovation, and sustainability. The proposal also highlights the group’s intention to preserve the property’s rich heritage in the process of modernizing.
