In February 2015 an official planning application was lodged for a major development on Boland’s Quay, which was approved just six months later. In the most recent update on the progression of these plans, it has been made clear that big changes will begin soon.

The “Boland’s Quay Development Group” is a collaboration of Mark Reynolds, Director of Development & Consultancy of Savills, and Cleary McCabe & Associates, a property development consultancy.

On Wednesday April 6, Reynolds spoke ahead of the official marketing launch for the Boland’s Quay Development. He stated that they plan to have employed a main contractor by the end of July and be on site at the start of September.

Three new landmark buildings will be built on 36,851 sq. m of office, retail, residential and cultural space. They have been designed by Dublin-based architectural practices Burke Kennedy Doyle. Once finished, it will accommodate up to 2500 workers and feature a new civic plaza looking out onto the waterfront at Grand Canal Dock.

Demolition work is currently taking place to remove the existing silos, and is due to be finished in June 2016. A specialist conservation contractor will be appointed at the end of April to ensure that the protected mill buildings on the site will be conserved for commercial and residential use. It is intended that the project will reach completion in 2018.
