New homes for Dundrum planned

Hammerson, on behalf of the Dundrum Retail Limited Partnership, will be submitting a planning application for 881 new homes to An Bord Pleanála for a proposed Strategic Housing Development on the site of the old Dundrum Shopping Centre.

The residential-led scheme, located adjacent to Dundrum Town Centre, will prioritise the provision of much needed new homes that can support sustainable development. The application also includes plans to rejuvenate the western edge of Dundrum main street and the surrounding area, with a range of complementary shops, cafes, restaurants, a crèche and significant new public realm. 

Connor Owens, Managing Director, Asset Management (Ireland & Scotland), Hammerson, said: “The project will regenerate an under-utilised site and help transform Dundrum into a truly mixed-use village by delivering much needed new homes which adhere to the highest standards in sustainable development. Linking to the Town Centre and Sweetmount Park opposite, the scheme will be close to modern public transport and guided by our core principles of sustainability, quality design, place-making, community and respect for local heritage. The development will replace the old car park-dominated shopping centre, providing new retail frontage on Main Street which is respectful of the village character and will ensure a vibrant shopping street is restored in Dundrum.”

The scheme includes a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments with residential buildings placed around new courtyard gardens, the development will comprise four main areas, each with specific, connected facilities.

The development will see removal of vehicular access to the site from Main Street with enhanced access instead from Dundrum Bypass. The physical barrier presented by the Bypass currently will be reduced by the construction of a new bridge for pedestrians and cyclists across the Bypass to connect Main Street to the Sweetmount Park area.

Three new public spaces off Main Street alongside a dedicated public square which will be available for community events.
