Located in South Dublin, Cherrywood, situated within the Cherrywood Strategic Development Zone (SDZ), is currently one of the largest urban developments in Europe and has been driven forward by Hines over the past 6 years. Originally a combination of a partially developed site and farmland, the Cherrywood lands are being transformed into a high-density suburban center, to be delivered on a phased basis. The 388-acre project’s masterplan has been designed to provide a state-of-the-art, sustainable, cycle and pedestrian-friendly mixed-use urban development.
Cherrywood is projected to have a future population of 25,000 residents, more than 8,000 new homes, a retail-led Town Centre, six new schools and three major parks, as well as leisure facilities.
During the first phase of construction Hines delivered 5.4 kilometers of new roads and 82 acres of parkland. This included the construction of three brand new flagship parks, a state-of-the art all-weather multipurpose pitch, six new tennis courts and a sports pavilion, 5.4 kilometers of roadways, pedestrian footpaths, cycle paths, greenways and the planting of more than 3,000 trees.
Hines is now developing Cherrywood Town Centre, which will consist of 1,300 new apartments, a 200-key hotel and a 721,182-square-foot mixed-use retail center. Cherrywood Town Centre is also registered for WELL Community certification plan to become the first WELL-certified development in Ireland and only the third in Europe.
