Dont think so, the plan was made in conjuction with dublin city council but more than likely it will be owned by and run by D.C.C.

Spring Cross eh? Something tells me the "Ballymun" won't last long when it comes to marketing it! Looks very ambitious and the layout seems well considered good but in style its fairly generic to me, particularly the internal shots. Oh how I wish atrium glass roofs could be as elegant and minimal in real life! Those sheets of glass have to be what, 4m x 8m or something...!

It is actually Real Estate Opportunities plc that own and plan to develop the site. REO is a london-listed spin off from Treasury although they do still have a majority shareholding.

Latest news was back in November and the chairman said at the time that he expected construction to start in 2010.

I wouldnt hold my breath though. The loans behind the development are going to Nama so I guess they'll have the final call.

Given that there is an abundance of retail on the m50 corridor already and the fact the development includes 600 apartments, it would seem ludicrous to proceed with it at this time IMO.

The site is really an eyesore from the road now mind.
