Mixed-use development planned in the heart of Dublin city centre
Europa Capital and its local partners, Core Capital and Oakmount, have launched Clerys Quarter, its mixed-use redevelopment of the Clerys site on O’Connell Street in Dublin city centre. The new owners bought the development in October last year with the benefit of planning permission to extend the current buildings from 212,000 to 344,000 sq ft. The new owners expect to start construction works in the first quarter of this year.
Key to the development will be the sympathetic transformation of the listed Clerys Building into a world class retail, office and leisure destination. The development will comprise 92,100 sq ft of new grade A office space across two buildings; 60,000 sq ft of prime retail; an 18,762-sq ft panoramic rooftop restaurant, bar and events venue; a number of new food & beverage units totalling 8,428 sq ft and a new 176-bedroom four-star hotel.
The retail offer will be spread over the existing basement, ground and first floors of the 165-year-old Clerys Building, fronting one of the best-known retail thoroughfares in Ireland.
And Earl Place Market will be an exciting new street level destination for hospitality, food and beverage. It will be home to Dublin’s growing food and beverage community, showcasing some of the best independent restaurants, cafes and bars in the city.
