We are expanding!
We are delighted to commence a €26 million investment in the retail, leisure and community facilities on offer at Liffey Valley Shopping Centre. It represents an exciting new phase of development for the Centre which has evolved into a major shopping destination for west Dublin and beyond. The €26 million investment will bring a new Penneys store, six restaurants, a cinema upgrade and a new civic space.
In addition, this investment will bring 450 full and part-time jobs on completion, as well as up to 225 construction jobs during the development phase. Liffey Valley’s expansion will also be a key element of local economic development in west Dublin and we are very pleased to commence these works to deliver the jobs and business benefits that will come from the expansion. We expect to see the cinema upgrade open in Autumn 2015, with the new Penneys due to open in late 2016.
This development of our customer offering is on top of our already successful retail mix comprising 100 stores and anchor tenants such Marks & Spencer, Next, Dunnes Stores and Boots. Liffey Valley also has a wide range of restaurants, a 1,000 seat newly refurbished food court and a 3,500-seat VUE cinema.
This expansion plan signals a promising new chapter for Liffey Valley and the customer experience that makes it one of Ireland’s leading shopping destinations.
For the moment please note that there is no rear access to the green car park (at the back of the cinema).
