Georgeâ€™s Dock to take Centre Stage
June 20, 2003
The Dublin Docklands Development Authority announced the commencement of works at Georgeâ€™s Dock in the International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) to create a unique event platform to accommodate live music, theatre and even an ice rink. The result will be a spectacular enhancement to the IFSC and Docklands area.
The works involve extensive upgrading of Georgeâ€™s Dock to include an underwater stage, improved lighting, new water fountains, seating and handrails to increase use and enjoyment of the amenity for residents and visitors alike.
A retaining wall is also being constructed between Georgeâ€™s Dock and the Inner Dock to facilitate control of water levels and to allow for drainage of each of the Docks separately. This is an essential upgrade so that periodic maintenance work can be carried out in both basins, when necessary.
The upgrade of Georgeâ€™s Dock demonstrates the Authorityâ€™s continued commitment to developing a world class physical environment in the Dublin Docklands area.
