Dublin Central scheme replaced with open-air mixed-use plan
Hammerson has reworked the existing planning permission for the €1.25bn Dublin Central shopping centre on a site which encompasses O’Connell Street, Moore Street, Henry Street and Parnell Street. It intends to apply for a new consent for a mixed-use, open-air scheme in keeping with its City Quarters concept, according to the Irish Times.
Hammerson inherited the site as part of its acquisition of the Chartered Land portfolio. The previous owner won consent for a major covered mall anchored by John Lewis.
International architect Acme has produced designs that envisage the restoration of historic street patterns, building lines and scale with 2,000 sq m of residential, 23,500 sq m of retail, 31,500 sq m of office space and a 4,700 sq m hotel.
