Baste and Vice Coffee are forced to move from their site in Portobello due to ‘redevelopment’

Words: Emily Mullen

The Clanbrassil Street Upper site will be turned into a mixed-use development

Baste’s site in Portobello has been earmarked for redevelopment, which is expected to commence in September. The BBQ-er’s site on Dublin 8’s Clanbrassil Street Upper received planning permission on March 25, 2021.

The site which takes in numbers 39, 40, 41, 42 & 42A, along the iconic road, will be turned into a mixed-use development, made up of 28 apartments and two ground floor retail units.

The planning permission was submitted to Dublin City Council by Clopen Limited, a property development company that operates under “an occupier led design approach” according to its website.

The redevelopment of the site involves “the demolition of existing buildings, structures and hardstanding areas on site except for northern boundary wall adjoining garden terrace.”

Speaking to representatives from Baste, they told us that they are due to move out at the end of August, but are hopeful to have secured a new location before then.

Vice Coffee who operate out of Baste issued a statement on the development writing, “we’re on the move again, our time at @bastebbq is coming to an end in September as the site is up for redevelopment”.

Arial footage of the 0.3-acre development site shows that it takes in the entire back of Baste’s outdoor area.

Clopen Limited have also redeveloped another area of Dublin 8, Francis Street, made up of 10 apartments, two joining commercial units, and a fully licensed public house, with planning permission lodged for a further “4 extra units.”
