Almost 20 years after the closure of the Irish Glass Bottle factory, the potential of the site is finally to be realised with the development of Glass Bottle – a vibrant waterfront community strategically located between Dublin City and Dublin Bay.
The creation of this new urban quarter will be see the transformation of approximately 15 hectares of a former industrial site into an integrated and vibrant neighbourhood with a balanced mix of residential, offices, retail, hotels, cultural and community facilities, leisure, restaurants, bars and open-air public amenity space within walking distance of Dublin City Centre.
At the heart of Glass Bottle will be approximately 3,800 new homes, providing housing for up to 9,500 people including 10% social housing and 15% affordable housing.
Planning was be submitted for Phase 1 of the development in June 2021. Here you can find details of what is proposed for Phase 1, and the overall Masterplan for the site.
Public consultation on more detailed aspects of the scheme, including community elements will follow in the next coming months.
