Green Light for Fallon and Byrne

Food hall, wine bar and restaurant group Fallon & Byrne has secured planning permission for a large extension at its flagship store in Dublin.fallon0120
An Bord Pleanála gave the go-ahead for construction across three floors at the company’s Exchequer Street site one month ahead of schedule.
 The plan includes a new outdoor terrace on the second floor. Consultants for Fallon & Byrne told Dublin City Council that the business required increased space to further develop and prosper.
 The plan had stalled after the owner of the adjoining block, Burlington Real Estate Ltd, lodged an appeal against the Dublin City Council decision giving the project permission last September.
An Bord Pleanála’s decision comes just weeks after the closure of Fallon & Byrne’s loss-making outlet in Rathmines, Dublin 6.
