Ireland: DLHC Commences Work on Harbour Development Project
Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company (DLHC) has commenced work on the Harbour Development project with an estimated investment of $334 million at Carlisle Pier, Dún Laoghaire Port, Leinster Province, Ireland.
The project involves construction of 300 new homes, berthing for large cruisers and food and beverage outlets. It also includes construction of marine, leisure, residential, commercial and other related facilities. The ferry terminal building located at the development will be demolished to offer free space for residential, commercial and leisure use.
The aim of the project is to position Dún Laoghaire as a marine, leisure and tourism destination of international calibre and provide a diverse range of facilities including retail, shopping, wholesale services and commercial facilities to meet the lifestyle needs of people in the regions.
Upon completion, the project will have one million visitors annually. Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company is the owner and Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is the planning authority for the project. Work on the project commenced in the second quarter of 2011 and is estimated to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2014.
