Ryde Developments Takes On Grand Canal Harbour Site In Docklands
One of the few remaining sites in the Grand Canal Harbour development in Dublin's Docklands has been acquired by Ryde Developments. Circa 13,000m2 of office and retail space fronting on to the Grand Canal Square piazza and the Grand Canal Dock is to be developed subject to approval under the Docklands Authority's Section 25 planning process.
The deal follows hot on the heels of the recent completion of purchase of the Riverside 1 site by McCann Fitzgerald also in Grand Canal Harbour. Other high profile transactions include the sale of the adjacent Riverside 2 to P. Elliott & Company and the announcement of the development of the new 5* Park Hyatt Hotel by Heritage Properties in the same area.
Meanwhile, construction of the Gallery Quay and Hanover Quay residential and Longboat Wharf residential and commercial schemes is well under way with completions scheduled between Spring and Autumn 2005.
As work commences on the next wave of developments at Grand Canal Harbour, the vision for this part of Docklands as a vibrant hub of activity is fast becoming a reality.
"We are pleased to welcome Ryde Developments to Grand Canal Harbour. This and other recent deals concluded by the Docklands Authority at Grand Canal Harbour signal a significant appetite for quality sites such as those that exist in the Docklands," said Mr Peter Coyne, Chief Executive of the Docklands Authority.
