Work starts on €500 million new urban village development in Dublin
Construction has started on the development of a new €500 million urban village development in Adamstown in Dublin.
Called The Crossings, the first phase of the scheme includes 279 apartments and over 91,000 square feet of space that will house two major supermarkets, 20 retail units and five restaurant outlets. There will also be a multi storey car park with electric vehicle charging points.
Developer Quintain said the scheme builds on its placemaking expertise gained at London’s Wembley Park as it looks to attract major retailers and restaurants to the scheme which will also include green open spaces. With 3,000 homes already completed in Adamstown, and over 5,000 new homes expected over the next five years, the development will become a focal point for the community.
Tesco has signed a lease for a 40,000 square foot store at The Crossings which is set to open in January 2023. A second supermarket is expected to launch at around the same time. Both will serve an estimated potential shopping population of over 100,000 people drawn from residents in Adamstown and the neighbouring suburbs of Lucan, Celbridge and Leixlip
James Saunders, chief executive of Quintain Limited, said: “Quintain’s decades of experience in placemaking and enlivenment, as exemplified by our
work at Wembley Park, is invaluable when it comes to creating new communities like The Crossings. We’re excited about drawing upon this experience as we continue to deliver new homes and community spaces in Ireland.”
Quintain plans to develop over 4,000 new homes and 250,000 square feet of commercial space across 220 acres of prime development land in the Adamstown/Lucan area.
