Highlight Thomas Street launches successfully into the Dublin student accommodation market and achieves fully occupancy in first year of operation.

The property at 32 Thomas Street in Dublin 8 is a redevelopment of the former Frawley’s Store that closed in 2007 after more than a century. The scheme which involved sensitive refurbishment and conservation of buildings fronting Thomas Street and a new state of the art purpose-built student accommodation block behind the retained buildings provides 257 much needed student bed spaces together with new retail units. The property which was completed in August was fully let before the end of September. Highlight Thomas Street is situated within 2 minutes’ walk of the National College of Art and Design and 15 minutes’ walk from Trinity College Dublin, Royal College of Surgeons and Dublin Business School.
