Dublin suburb to get revamp

Landscape architects required for work at Dublin regeneration

Landscape architects are needed to help regenerate the Dublin suburb of Ballymun. The suburb, near Dublin airport, is the subject of a massive regeneration project which has already seen the knocking down of its unsightly 1960s tower blocks, and the building of new homes, roads, parks, public spaces, roads, and leisure facilities. Two contracts are available to re-landscape two parts of Ballymun earmarked for development in the area’s masterplan – which was created in consultation with its 30,000 residents. The first contract, named “lot 1,” is for the landscaping of a new road named Main Street and land around the nearby M50 motorway. “Lot 2” is for the landscaping of Ballymun Neighbourhoods – new housing estates which are set to gain new green spaces, squares, and parks. A Ballymun Regeneration representative said: “We are looking for a landscape architect with experience in public consultation and the capability of delivering sophisticated but modest design proposals which will add distinctive character to neighbourhood areas.” Main Street will become a new focal point of the suburb and is set to feature large species urban trees in metal grids, stone seats, “sophisticated” phone boxes, public art, lighting, patterned paving, and water fountains. Interested parties should contact Ballymun Regeneration on 00 353 1 2225660 or li.qian@dublincity.ie. The tendering deadline is 7 September.
