Go-ahead for major mixed-use scheme in Dublin’s docklands

Words: Roger Milne

US investment firm Kennedy Wilson has been given the green light for a huge apartment and office development in Dublin’s docklands area.

Kennedy Wilson and its joint venture partner Nama confirmed it had secured planning permission for its development on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay in Dublin 2.

Its “Capital Dock” scheme extends over nearly two hectares on the quays across the river from the Three Arena.

The proposals will see the construction of 61,316 square metres of apartments and office space as well as 204 flats.

Kennedy Wilson and Nama expect to commence on site by December 2015, with the first office buildings available from mid-2017.

Kennedy Wilson Europe managing director Peter Collins insisted: “This development will have a transformative effect, not only on the skyline of the Dublin Docklands, but on the public social, cultural and business realm in this part of the city. It will be the standard-bearer for integrated office and residential development in this country.”
