The redevelopment of the iconic Clerys building, originally constructed in 1922, and its surroundings on Dublin’s O’Connell Street will regenerate and reactivate the urban fabric and greatly enhance the evolving architectural rejuvenation of this part of the inner city.
The building will be six storeys in height, and include a new rooftop viewing terrace which includes bars and restaurants, along with a 176-bedroom hotel.
Continuity and extension of existing land uses with a regenerated network of mixed use spaces.
The development will provide almost 32,000m² of modern office, retail, food & beverage, hotel and hospitality space. These uses activate the existing fabric and create additional amenities which serve to enhance pedestrian links in this quarter of Dublin. These connections also reaffirm the bond between the protected structure and the public realm of the development and rejuvenate its purpose and vitality for the next 100 years.
The proposed roof top destination is seen as a key element of this important inner city development. It successfully blends additional publicly accessible space as an appropriate response to the ambition and vision for the redevelopment.
