Designed by Shay Cleary Architects, this 16-storey skinny scraper overlooking Grand Canal Dock was awarded the Silver Medal for Housing, the highest honour for housing design, by the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI).
Lasting relationships with outstanding architectural minds yield great results as exemplified by Alto Vetro. The relatively small footprint of the two-storey house, known as Quay Lodge, once home to the Basin Captain tasked with overseeing the Grand Canal Docks, was replaced by this striking apartment building, which we held as an investment asset until its sale in 2014.
Our vision for this site was recognised by RIAI President, Paul Keogh, who deemed Alto Vetro ‘pitch-perfect’ and praised this new urban marker for providing high quality apartments that respond to the needs of many demographic groups.
With 24 two-bed apartments complete with balconies and two triplex penthouses with roof gardens, Alto Vetro offers residents a private gym, two retail units on the ground floor along with great transport connectivity and a choice of shopping and leisure destinations nearby.
A highly desirable address, these triple aspect apartments are coveted residences offering spectacular views in one of Dublin’s landmark locations.
