Details of Connolly site emerge

By Ronald Quinlan

Developer Sean Mulryan's Ballymore Properties is to partner with Irish transport provider CIE on the delivery of a major scheme next to Connolly Station in Dublin's IFSC, it can be revealed.

The Connolly Quarter, as it will be known, will include 82,000 sq m (883,000 sq ft) of mixed-use space, comprising 50,000 sq m (540,000 sq ft) of offices, a hotel and apartments.

The single largest office space within the development is a block of up to seven storeys which will be 13,450 sq m (145,000 sq ft) at the junction of Seville Place and the construction of a new street linking Seville Place and Sheriff Street Lower.

Ballymore's success in securing the tender for the 3.2 hectare (7.9 acre) site comes just weeks after developer Richard Barrett's Bartra Capital Property Group was selected as CIE's partner for a new high-rise office scheme at Grand Canal Quay in Dublin's south docklands area.
