Cherrywood Development, South County Dublin
Cherrywood is one of Dublin’s most significant developments in recent years. Work began earlier this year on the €2 billion Strategic Development Zone in South County Dublin. The self-contained business, leisure, retail and residential centre will be set on a 400 acre site with a pivotal location adjacent to the M50, approximately 8 miles south of Dublin City Centre.
This large scale development will eventually provide 4,000 new homes, a brand new town centre and three new parks set over 82 acres which will act as key recreational and environmental amenities.
The new homes will comprise of a mix of houses, townhouses and apartments and are expected to accommodate up to 15 thousand people. The multi million euro development at Cherrywood will also consist of new offices and retail space as well as a new town centre. Additional works will include new roadways and cycle lanes as well as the planting of over 3,000 mature trees and it’s expected that the brand new suburb will eventually have a population of around 30,000 people.
John Cradock Ltd /Jons Civil Engineering have been contracted to roll out the first phase of the development. These infrastructure works will consist of the development of new roads internally on the site (approx. 5.4km) – with a full drainage network, cycle lanes, greenways, pedestrian footpaths, public lighting as well as 6 major junctions and three substantial sized parks over 82 acres – the 13 acre Beckett Park which is similar in size to Merrion Square, the 22 Acre Tully Park equivalent in size to St Stephen’s Green and the 47 acre Ticknick Park which will be the largest park facility.
PST Sport is delighted to be working with John Cradock Ltd on such a large scale project. We have recently won the contract to install a 7000m artificial grass pitch that will meet major sporting code requirements with shock pad, full groundworks and fencing at Beckett Park. The project will also include the installation of a 600m MUGA suitable for 5-a-side soccer, hockey, basketball etc. as well as a bowling green with 4 no. lanes, each 15x4m.
