The main details of the proposed Cherrywood Town Centre planning application are:

* The 2.1 million-square-foot plan includes over 1,250 apartments and key retail - shops, restaurants, cafes and community facilities.

* The development will comprise a large residential component of 1,269 build-to-rent apartments, as well as 585,000 square feet of retail and leisure outlets.

* Cherrywood Town Centre will be constructed on an elevated site integrating the existing Luas stops of Cherrywood and Bride’s Glen.

* The pedestrian and bike friendly Town Centre will include a series of covered and open public spaces, that will be enlivened by the extensive choice of shops, bars, restaurants, a hotel and other leisure facilities.

* The open-plan apartment designs have been planned to incorporate the latest ideas on apartment living based on Hines experience in the U.S. and Europe. They will make a significant impact in addressing the very high demand that currently exists in the Dublin residential market for one and two-bedroom apartments.
* The new Town Centre will also be built alongside the newly created Tully Park – currently under construction and equivalent in size to St Stephen’s Green.

* These elements will combine to make for a highly accessible, walkable, green urban environment with great shopping, leisure and amenity options for all to enjoy.

* Hines has engaged extensively with the local community about the new town of Cherrywood, most recently through a series of open days held earlier this year. In February, over 3,000 members of the public met with the project team and walked through two display apartments to familiarise themselves with the vision for the new town.

* The proposed Cherrywood Town Centre will also be served by new bus routes to complement existing Dublin Bus services into the area as well as a bus link to the Shankill Dart station.

* The town will also have two new large underground carparks, 2,600 bicycle spaces, and over 150 charging points for electric vehicles.

* Pending planning approval, construction of the Town Centre is expected to take 3 years to complete, with 3,000 construction workers employed over the course of the various stages.

* It is hoped to commence construction in Q2 2018. Cherrywood Town Centre will eventually be home to over 3,200 people, with the potential to accommodate 2,300 office staff and provide employment for more than 2,500 retail workers.

* Construction is already well advanced by Hines, the other Cherrywood landowners and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council on the first key phase of the Cherrywood development, a €160m project to deliver three brand new flagship parks and 5.4 kilometres of roadways, pedestrian footpaths, cycle paths and greenways, as well as the planting of over 3,000 new trees. This work is progressing on schedule and is due for completion in Spring 2018.

Ø  Pedestrian pathways, tracks and greenways           -        37 km
