Major new retail development will enhance Newbridge shopping
The way has been cleared for a large extension to well-known Newbridge Courtyard Shopping Centre which is great news for local shoppers.
The four-storey project will also have car parking and residential units - which will help to ease the current shortage of housing.
The Courtyard Shopping Centre is adjacent to Whitewater Shopping Centre and benefits from extensive footfall from the largest regional shopping centre in Ireland.
Kildare County Council's decision to grant planning permission to Treacy Courtyard Developments Limited for an extension to the retail complex has been recently upheld by An Bord Pleanála despite an objection.The new investment will greatly upgrade the existing shopping area, which features stores run by famous brands such as TK Maxx, Dealz, Gamestop and a number of individual retail outlets.
The permission that has been granted by the Council allows for the demolition of an existing unit and storage building.There will then be the construction of a new block, which will be comprising of 6085sqm of retail space on ground, first and second floors, car parking to third and fourth floors, connecting to the adjoining existing multi storey car park.
The plans also include the construction of three retail units to ground floor of Block CC3 comprising of 286sqm retail space, along with the construction of six two-bed apartments on first, second and third floors.
Treacy Courtyard Development Limited, which was set up in 2007, is involved in the development and sale of residential and commercial properties.
Connecting roads and landscaping works will also be part of the designs.
