Edward Capital has been given the green light for an ambitious urban regeneration scheme in the heart of Galway city.

The proposals, now known as Augustine Hill, involve a mix of 229 flats, a 130-bed hotel, a six-screen cinema, restaurants, retail outlets, a craft food market distributed across 11 new and fully-pedestrianised streets and four large public spaces. 

The residential element of the mixed-use scheme will be housed in seven blocks with a 21-storey tower as its centrepiece. The development will be located on a 3.2-hectare site adjacent to Ceannt Station.

Augustine Hill is a joint development by CIÉ, which owns the land, Edward Capital, and Summix Capital. CIÉ held a competition in 2017 to find a developer for the site.
