Hammerson has appointed ACME to create the development concept for a new quarter in Dublin

The six-acre Dublin Central site in the north of the inner city, often referred to as the Carlton Cinema site, stretches from Upper O’Connell Street to Parnell Street to Moore Street and Henry Street.  

ACME has previously worked with Hammerson on city centre schemes including Victoria Gate in Leeds, Westquay South in Southampton and Highcross in Leicester.

The latest scheme will be led by the practice’s founding director, Friedrich Ludewig. 

Simon Betty, Hammerson’s director of retail Ireland, said: ‘We are confident the team at ACME will produce a vision which is fitting of this unique location and we believe that the right scheme can reinvigorate this part of the north inner city centre.

‘Hammerson is committed to ensuring that the future development of O’Connell Street and Moore Street will seek to protect and enhance its unique heritage and connections with [the Easter Rising in] 1916, while at the same time, delivering clear economic benefits and employment opportunities locally.’ 

Hammerson will work with the School of Architecture at Dublin Institute of Technology on the project.

    If nobody can be bothered to even hint at what this ‘development concept’ is why bother publishing a piece on the subject. Waste of time reading it.
