Back to Projects Civic Centre, Sean McDernott Street

This development plan, commissioned by the Dublin City Council in relation to their Development Plan for the North East Inner City (NEIC), makes a proposal for the mixed development of a city block along Sean McDermott Street.

The scheme includes a new Civic Centre for the NEIC, new accommodation for the Convent sisters and a sheltered housing building, high density affordable housing, commercial offices and shops and the refurbishment of the existing convent building and chapel for alternative uses. Provision is made for a new urban open space and the plan respects the scale and character of the retained 19th century buildings mainly along Sean McDermott and Buckingham Streets.
