City Edge, Dublin, Ireland is shortlisted for The Pineapple Award

We are happy to announce that City Edge, Dublin, Ireland is shortlisted for The Pineapple Award for International Future Place, celebrating the best in placemaking.⁠

We have been leading a multi-disciplinary team to support South Dublin County Council and Dublin City Council, develop a vision for this 700ha site in west Dublin. The scheme covers three regeneration areas and asks how a mixed-use urban quarter can be established as an extension of the city using a plan-led evidence-based approach. Currently, the City Edge Study Area sustains 25,500 jobs across 1,500 businesses and contributes €1.98bn per year to the economy. Our thanks to our wider team of @urban_agency_architects, @avison_young_global, @systraltd, @grantassocs, Nicholas O’Dwyer and IAC, and congratulations to our own Urban Studio team for their innovative work on this project. ⁠

City Edge is all about creating a series of neighbourhoods of distinct characters, identifying potential employment sectors, alongside housing typologies at an effective density and diversity that will cater for the long-term housing needs of the population. ⁠

One golden thread running through all aspects of the project is sustainability. The scale of the project allows a holistic approach and one that can tie in coordination of many different aspects such as sustainable transport, active travel, the circular economy, social sustainability and environmental sustainability.⁠
