000cbe1c-642A 22,000 sq m development at Liffey Valley Shopping Centre in Dublin has been granted planning permission. The development will include a new civic plaza and a 2,500 seat Olympic-sized indoor ice arena.

The new plaza will be equivalent to a typical European-scale urban plaza, while the ice arena will be capable of hosting international ice skating competitions, ice hockey matches and ice entertainment performances.

Asset and development managers Hines submitted the planning application for the expansion of Liffey Valley on behalf of its co-owners in February.

South Dublin County Council removed a proposed multi-storey car park – which was to be positioned adjacent to the ice arena – as part of the planning permission.

Hines said it will review the basis for the removal of the car park and work towards an improved solution.

Senior Managing Director of Hines Ireland Brian Moran the granting of planning permission means “we now have a visionary plan approved which will redefine Liffey Valley as both a shopping and retail experience and also as a leisure and recreation destination.”

He added: “This new additional public space will provide an additional mixed leisure entertainment, commercial and retail extension creating an active public environment, which fully resonates with the local community.”

Earlier this year, studies commissioned by Hines predicted that spending and population growth in Liffey Valley’s catchment will outstrip growth in supply over the next five years.
