With direction from world-class architects, the scheme’s Streets & Squares design and pedestrianised racetrack layout will offer an authentic experience, increase dwell times and foster social connections. Cherrywood boasts a floating glass canopy, which creates an open-air feel, while protecting visitors from the elements. The Streets & Squares design also creates a unique town centre experience which will make Cherrywood the retail, F&B and entertainment destination for South Dublin.

Derek Rossel, Development Director at Hines, commented: “Cherrywood Town Centre will be a complete reboot of retail in Dublin as nothing of this scale has been built for the last two decades. We are targeting an exceptional tenant mix with a strong emphasis on food & beverage and leisure, underpinned by experiences and events to ensure both stong day and night-time economies. Ultimatley, Cherrywood Town Centre will be a place for people, and being a true mixed-use scheme on public transport, we will welcome different people, at different times of day for different reasons.”

This includes facilitating the convergence between online and offline, ensuring that omnichannel is an integrated part of the customer journey by providing convenient customer vehicle dropoff and pick-up locations and Click and Collect facilities that are coordinated with back-of-house logistics areas. To further facilitate convenience, the scheme is seamlessly integrated with two major motorways as well as public transport and a light rail network.
