Plans to redevelop Dublin suburb into major mixed-use town centre unveiled
Hines, the international real estate firm, is developing a new retail destination in south Dublin billed to become “Ireland’s Future of Retail’.
The development project, Cherrywood Town Centre in Dublin, is set to deliver a 67,000 sq m next generation retail centre with thousands of build-to-rent apartments and 585,000sq ft of retail and office space.
The developers are promising the scheme will feature a set of brands and concepts never seen in South Dublin before.
The focus on place, experience and convenience will be supported by a clever pedestrianised racetrack layout designed to increase dwell times and foster social connections.
Derek Rossel, Development Director at Hines, commented: “Cherrywood Town Centre will be a complete reboot of retail in Dublin as nothing of this scale has been built for the last two decades. We are targeting an exceptional tenant mix with a strong emphasis on food & beverage and leisure, underpinned by experiences and events to ensure both strong day and night-time economies.
“Ultimately, Cherrywood Town Centre will be a place for people, and being a true mixed-use scheme on public transport, we will welcome different people, at different times of day for different reasons.”
The innovative 800-acre development will also incorporate online and offline shopping elements such as providing convenient customer vehicle drop- off and pick-up locations and Click and Collect facilities that are coordinated with back-of-house logistic areas.
Construction is expected to begin in the final quarter of this year, and the scheme is scheduled to open in 2022.
