A NEW â‚¬100m skyscraper, incorporating a train station, is planned for the city centre, despite the economic downturn.
Iarnrod Eireann said it will press ahead with its ambitious plans -- and is confident about finding a development partner to build a ten-storey 60m high office development at Tara Street.
The company will apply for planning permission later this month to build the office block and train station, which will allow up to 14,500 passengers an hour to access Dart and other rail services.
Tara Street is one of the busiest train stations in the country, currently catering to 25,000 passengers a day, or 20pc of all people using the network.
Office space of 13,000 square metres will be provided, while the building will be 60.8m tall.
The station will remain open during construction as the project, to minimise disruption, will be delivered on a phased basis.
Tara Street has been identified by Dublin City Council as being one of several sites across the city suitable for high-rise development.
Because a station is at the heart of the project, An Bord Pleanala has deemed the proposal to be strategic infrastructure meaning the Board, not the city council, will decide if the application should be approved
A planning application will be lodged later this year, and construction is expected to begin next year with completion in 2012
