Details & Amenities

In the heart of this historic dockyard, Grand Canal Harbour will feature 482 one-bed and 114 two-bed apartments arranged in six blocks ranging from three to thirteen storeys.

With 54% of the development dedicated to public spaces, Grand Canal Harbour will be fully pedestrianised with internal streets and new routes linking Market St through Basin View and onto St James’s Hospital. 

In total, over 7,000 sqm (76,000 sq ft) will be dedicated to resident’s amenities, including landscaped communal spaces – at roof level to maximise sunlight – fitness areas, playgrounds, a creche, as well as retail space, restaurants and a medical centre. The roof terraces have been designed to provide a green oasis to residents, offering some semi-open winter gardens options with glass canopies and glazing to facilitate all-year-round use.

The historic Harbour Warehouse, a Protected Structure, is to be fully restored and refurbished and will become a key feature of the development giving a unique and distinctive character to the area in reference to its industrial heritage. The structure will be extended via a glazed atrium and host the medical centre, a cafe, along with some retail units and co-working spaces.

The public Plaza will offer a flexible outdoor space, available for open-air markets and events, featuring an impressive central water feature celebrating the site’s history.

Grand Canal Harbour will provide a home to people working in the area, emanating a community feeling and a real sense of place.

Echoing its once vital relationship with the canal network, Grand Canal Harbour is in a very enviable location. Neighbouring the Guinness Storehouse (and its famous Gravity Bar), the site is centred between some of the country’s landmark institutions, with Dublin city centre a short walk away, and excellent public transport options.

Close to two stops of the Luas Red line, Heuston Station as well as multiple Dublin Bus routes and Dublin bikes stations, the development also has good road connections to the M50 and the N4. Dublin Airport is a 30-minute drive away.
