South King Street: will incorporate a large anchor store

£70m scheme to arrive in Dublin

Published:  01 March, 2005

Dublin city council has given the green light for Joe O’Reilly’s £70m mixed-use development in South King Street.

The 80,000 sq ft scheme – to be known simply as South King Street – will combine retail, leisure and residential over four levels.

It will incorporate a large anchor store – talks are currently taking place with a department store retailer – and the potential for a further eight units ranging from 2,000 to 40,000 sq ft.

In addition to the effect the Luas light transit system has had on footfall, O’Reilly said Top Shop’s Dublin acquisition “will also attract more shoppers, helping to refocus retail in the area.”

Work on the scheme, designed by A&D Wejchert, is due to start in June with demolition of an Eircom building. Expected completion is autumn 2007.

The letting agent is Bannon Commercial and marketing strategist is Anderson Retail.
