Dublin Airport Authority planning airport-style city three times size of Dundrum

The Dublin Airport Authority is developing a €1bn plan to build a 3.2 million square foot airport-style city in North Dublin.

According to documents seen by the Sunday Business Post, the development will be constructed over 15 years in one of Ireland's largest ever building projects - three times the size of the Dundrum Town Centre.

The project will be called Dublin Airport Central and will create a high-tech airport city which would attract both multi-national and domestic tenants.

Responding to the claims, the authority said: "Since 2013 the DAA intended to redevelop a 70 acre site at the airport over a 25-30 year time frame and any decision to proceed will be dependent on a number of planning and commercial issues."
