€10M Make-Over of Blackrock Shopping Centre
With the redevelopment of Frascati Shopping Centre well underway it’s no surprise other significant redevelopments are now in the pipeline for the surrounding area in South County Dublin. Most notably of these is the recent lodgement of a planning application to Dun-Laoghaire Rathdown County Council in July 2017 by Friend First Life Assurance Co DAC for external and internal alterations to Blackrock Shopping Centre. This will fall under the overall masterplan of the site which includes Enterprise House.
The mall includes: 87,000 sq ft of retail space and 58,000 sq ft of offices making it a prime target and location for this multi-million euro facelift. In late 2016, they obtained planning permission to redevelop the 1980s Enterprise House office building, which forms part of the Blackrock Shopping Centre complex and is currently housing Zurich Life Insurance.
#Team3DDB were involved in both projects, working closely with the architectural arm of Lafferty, creating high-end CGI’s and VVM’s which are being used for marketing and planning purposes.
