South Dublin County Council has granted planning permission for a €135m extension to Dublin’s Liffey Valley Shopping Centre. The plan had originally been rejected by An Bord Pleanála in February 2017 based on the negative impact it would have had on the road network. This time around there was objections from the owners of The Square Shopping Centre in Tallaght, who fear that the new extension would “cannibalise” their sales. Despite this, the green light has been given.
The plans are built around a new landmark feature, a large public plaza, which will be divided by an east-west street. The attractions at the heart of the centre will include mixed leisure, entertainment and retail. Two large retail units will be strategically placed on either side of the plaza.
The planning consultants, Avison Young, have confirmed that the two story extension will comprise 47,000 square meters.
