Open Days to take place for Player Wills development

by Rachel Darcy

Residents, community groups, and sporting clubs in Dublin 8 are being invited to attend open days on the proposed regeneration of the former Player Wills and Bailey Gibson sites on South Circular Road.

Real Estate investment firm Hines acquired the properties at the beginning of 2019.

Since then, a project team has been drafting a vision for the regeneration of a consolidated development, which includes the creation of a transformative residential scheme for the area.

The two drop-in open days will take place on March 12 from 1:00 pm to 8.00 pm and on March 13 from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm with admission via the Donore Avenue entrance to the Player Wills Factory Site, located beside St. Catherine’s National School.

The open days will provide visitors with insight into the upcoming planning application and delivery timelines for the development. The Hines project team will also be on site throughout both days to provide additional information and gather feedback from members of the public about the vision for the proposed regeneration of the site. 

The vision for the regeneration of the Player Wills and Bailey Gibson sites is based on Dublin City Council’s Development Plan and the SDRA 12 Framework Plan.

Both plans have established clear design guidelines, which will guide the creation of a residential-led urban quarter, and a new public park that will include a range of recreational and sporting facilities.
