DBFL have been engaged by Hines as engineers for the redevelopment of the Central Plaza on Dame Street and College Green.
Phase 1 of the development involves the refurbishment of the tower office building to deliver modern office facilities. This phase requires the existing twin cores of the structure to be remodelled internally to deliver new M&E risers plus additional lift shafts.
Later phases involve the conversion of the highest level plant room to hospitality space with panoramic views over Dublin, the introduction of cafés and restaurants around the base of the tower building and the opening up of the existing double basement for retail use.
Ancillary buildings at Nos 6-8 and No 9 College Green are also to be refurbished as standalone properties while the Annex and Commercial buildings that sit adjacent to the plaza at the base of the tower will be extended to modern office and retail use.
