Plans for a 12-storey build-to-rent scheme in Walkinstown have been refused by An Bord Pleanála.
One of the country’s best-known businesses, Joseph Brennan Bakeries, had lodged an objection to the 633 unit development.
The four-block scheme was proposed for lands at the former Chadwicks builder’s yard which forms part of the Greenhill industrial estate.
The scheme is made up of 292 one-bedroom apartments, 255 two-bedroom four-person units, 25 two-bedroom three-person units and 61 three-bedroom units.
In its decision, the appeals board stated the proposed development in its current form "would be contrary to the REGEN zoning objective for the site".
The appeals board said it had regard to the potential conflict with the proposed BusConnects Core Bus Corridor to the city centre and the car-dominated environment at the Greenhills Road part of the proposed scheme.
The board also refused planning permission after concluding that the proposal would contravene a development plan policy which seeks to ensure that all new residential development within the county is of high-quality design.
