Hammerson moves forward with Dublin development
Hammerson is moving forward with its Dublin Central development in Dublin’s north inner-city after appointing Irish architects Grafton, RKD and MOLA to join Acme “to advance ambitious regeneration”.
They will join Acme to develop existing proposals and push forward planning applications in the first half of 2021.
The development is a mixed use one which includes retail, offices, residential, hotel, and restaurant space.
Dublin Central is planning to occupy “a significant position in Dublin 1, with site frontage to Upper O’Connell Street, Parnell Street, Moore Street and Henry Street”.
The design team is being lead by Acme Architects under Friedrich Ludewig. The practice has a history of long term partnerships with Hammerson, having delivered UK projects including Victoria Gate in Leeds, Westquay South in Southampton and Highcross in Leicester.
Managing director City Quarters, Hammerson, Simon Betty said: “We have assembled an outstanding design team, boasting the best of Irish architectural expertise, to undertake this important project."
“Dublin Central presents an exceptional opportunity to create a landmark quarter in Dublin’s north inner city. We are delighted to have appointed a full design team for the project and are looking forward to bringing the ambitious vision and plans for Dublin Central to life.”
