A huge regeneration project is currently underway in Dublin city centre's The Liberties which will see the construction of a 239-bedroom hotel, an indoor market, a microbrewery, retail and office space and residential accommodation.
This regeneration would involve the demolition of an enterprise centre built back in the seventies to be replaced by a hotel, retail space and residential units.
Upon completion, the completed project is set to create 1,700 permanent jobs and will extend to cover 400,000 sq ft, according to Dublin Live.
The above proposals were outlined today by Newmarket Partnership for the Newmarket Square area of The Liberties. The proposed hotel is set to be located across Newmarket Square from the Teeling Distillery.
A spokesperson for Newmarket Partnership said:
“Newmarket Square and adjoining streets are the heart of Dublin’s Liberties but have suffered significant neglect in recent decades. Much of the regeneration we are planning would involve replacing 1970s enterprise and factory units with mixed use development comprising a hotel, new retail and office space and accommodation.
"We also plan to include a micro brewery in our regeneration. Newmarket Square has witnessed a re-birth thanks to the Teeling Distillery and some outdoor markets but we believe now is the time to transform the old enterprise centre into a residential and retail hub, with an iconic hotel and other attractions which will encourage people to not alone visit but reside in the heart of Dublin.”
