In 2017, Hines Ireland, in partnership with the Peterson Group in Hong Kong, acquired Central Plaza as part of an impressive portfolio of five buildings located on Dame Street in the heart of Dublin. Plans were then announced to reposition the former Central Bank HQ as a new landmark destination in the heart of Dublin’s city centre.
Beside the opening of the multi-storey car park, the Westmead Redevelopment project completed another major milestone in 2017, with the completion of our early and enabling works package. Much of this work took place behind-the-scenes and was comparatively less visible than the construction of our new car park or the works underway on the central acute services building.

At the end of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st centuries a new large motorway ring-road was being constructed to the east of Dublin - the M50. The Southern link of the M50 was being constructed near the College of St Columba and the TY pupils decided that, as a video project, they would interview Mr Tim Furlong who was the chief engineer in charge of the whole construction and also a former Columban. This video was made in the year 2000 by the TY pupils themselves.
Anew build development in Dublin is being dubbed 'Ireland's Knightsbridge' thanks to the deep pockets needed to buy one of the luxury apartments.The homes in the Ballsbridge area of the historic city have been painstakingly constructed, as reflected in the careful preservation of 150-year-old trees on the site.The trees have been preserved due to the site's history - it is where the Trinity College Botanical Gardens sat between 1806 and 1968.The Lansdowne Place development, which has one-bedroom flats starting from £695,000, is close to the Aviva Stadium, home of Irish rugby.Among the dozens of preserved trees is the star of the show - a strawberry tree.It is so called not because it produces any strawberries but due to the striking red colour of its bark.It takes pride of place, and is even reflected in the logo in the scheme's marketing material and a specially commission statue that is being commission for the front of the development.The site's landscaper Andrew Ballsbridge explained how the old trees create a less manicured look to the new development, saying: 'Residents are seeking proximity to nature.in a digital world, people appreciate these things.' The first block of the development is sold out and will be ready to move into in November.The scheme launches to international buyers this week, with all 60 flats sold so far having been bought by Dubliners.Six more blocks are available with each one being named after a well-known figure within the botanical industry.They include one called Templeton, named after John Templeton - the man regarded as the father of Irish botany.Another of the blocks is called Hutchins, after Ellen Hutchins, who was Ireland's first female botanist and identified several important specimens.The site's history is not the only unique feature of the development.It is an aspirational development that breaks the record for the highest price per square foot for a new-build apartment in Dublin.The development is in the prime Dublin location of Ballsbridge, with the highest price achieved so far in the block being €1,725 - the equivalent of £1,500 - per square foot.This is believed to be among the highest price ever paid in Dublin for a new-build apartment and it was for a three-bedroom penthouse on the development.It achieved the price due to a number of factors.Lansdowne Place includes stunning interiors with handcrafted kitchens by O'Connors, a sun room and an en-suite with every bedroom.It is also the first block of new-build flats in Dublin with extensive facilities such as a library, well-being treatment rooms and a cinema room.While these may be more commonplace elements of new luxury apartment buildings in other cities in England, this is the first time they have appeared in Dublin.The Irish capital is seeing huge growth in the property market to cater for employees from companies such as Facebook, Google and Airbnb, which all have bases in Dublin.This companies are part of a city that has been named as having t
