Ballymore is inviting the local community to come and have their say on proposals for the Guinness Quarter, which promises to be one of Europe’s most exciting regeneration projects and Dublin’s first zero carbon district. Plans to transform Guinness’ famous St James’s Gate brewery site into a sustainable new neighbourhood will be showcased in a week-long public engagement event running until 5 November at the iD8 Studios in the city.
Local people will have the opportunity to see and comment on designs for the retail and commercial workspaces, homes, cultural facilities and public spaces planned for the 12.6 acre site. Ballymore is working with global drinks giant Diageo, as well as the local community and stakeholders, to develop the shared vision for this important project.
Ballymore Chairman and Group Chief Executive Sean Mulryan said: “St James’s Gate has over 260 years of history, and so, we have a unique responsibility to ensure that when that famous gate opens, it opens to a place synonymous with good times and memorable experiences. We look forward to discussing that directly with the local community, before then moving forward with a world-class new neighbourhood which draws on a distinct and inimitable part of Ireland’s heritage.”
