Hammerson appoints architects for Dublin Central project
The property market may be tough at the moment but Hammerson is moving forward with its Dublin Central development in Dublin’s north inner-city. It has appointed Irish architects Grafton, RKD and MOLA to join Acme “to advance [the] ambitious regeneration”.
The development is a mixed use one that includes retail, as well as workspace, residential, hotel, and restaurant space.
The expanded team “will advance existing proposals to bring forward planning applications in the first half of 2021,” the company said.
Dublin Central is intended 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 led by Acme Architects under Friedrich Ludewig, which has been in that position since 2018 and which has brought forward a new masterplan for the project. The practice has a longstanding partnership with Hammerson, having delivered UK projects including Victoria Gate in Leeds, Westquay South in Southampton and Highcross in Leicester.
Simon Betty, Managing Director City Quarters, Hammerson, said: “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.”
