Hines and Peterson are submitting a planning application to Dublin City Council that will reposition the former Central Bank HQ as a new landmark destination in the heart of Dublin’s city centre.

 

Designed by award-winning architect Sam Stephenson in the 1970s, the building was acquired by Hines and Peterson earlier this year, following the Central Bank’s relocation to new premises on North Wall Quay. 

According to Hines official statement, the new vision for the building and surrounding area sees the creation of a mixed-use scheme, known as Central Plaza, which will incorporate retail, restaurants and café uses at street and basement level, as well as the creation of a two-story rooftop hospitality destination and viewing area.

The proposal also envisages an expansion of the existing plaza and the creation of a dynamic new street scape toward College Green and along Fownes Street and Cope Street, creating a pivotal new steppingstone between the key retail and tourist destinations of Grafton Street, College Green and Temple Bar.

Upon completion of the redevelopment works, the area will reopen to the public and with the removal of the railings installed in 1998, the plaza will become a larger and even more vibrant public space.

Central Plaza has the potential to accommodate 1,000 office workers and create more than 300 full and part-time retail and hospitality jobs, upon completion.
