A new €1bn building at Dublin’s city centre will be the subject of a major overhaul of the city’s architecture in the coming months.
The new skyscraper, being built in the heart, or inner, of the Dublin Central Station, is the result of the regeneration of the central railway station area.
The project, which will be finished by 2025, is part of the €1.7bn Dublin Regional Transport Plan.
Dublin is expected to be home to over one million people by the end of the century, but the city is facing major challenges to maintain a steady population in the face of increasing population growth.
Dubai’s population is projected to increase by more than 60 per cent over the next 20 years, to reach 6.5 million by 2041.
Dubbed the Central Station 2.0, the project will include the redevelopment of the old Central Station and the expansion of the existing Central Station Station.
It will also include the construction of a new building for the city, and the relocation of some train passengers to the new Central Station.
Dubliners will also be able to access a new subway system which will run along the eastern side of the railway station, connecting the city with the new station.
Dubliner commuters will have access to a new underground metro station that will be opened in 2021.
Dubs Metro will be connected to the existing metro system, the existing rail station, and a new commuter rail station at Rathmore Square.
A new pedestrian bridge will be built at the junction of Rathmore and Castleford Streets.
The project, funded by the Government and built by Irish company Tyneside Engineering, will be completed in 2025 and will be named Dublin Central.
It is expected that the building will have a total of three levels, with the first to be constructed at the western end of Dublin Central, and be the most heavily redeveloped.
It is hoped that the second level, which is planned for the eastern end of Central Station will be fully refurbished by the middle of the decade.
The third level will be dedicated to visitors.
The Central Station is currently the only station on the Dublin Regional Rail network.
Its new twin towers will rise above the station to provide visitors with a view of the river, and it will feature a new outdoor pedestrian bridge.
The redevelopment of Central will be an example of the Government’s strategy of creating new urban areas, with a focus on creating a new urban core, rather than a centralised urban area.
Dublings Central Station project is one of the major projects in the new Dublin Regional Plan, which was published last week.
It comes as the Government is preparing to announce the details of the regional rail network, which the Government says will be more efficient and faster than the existing services.
Dubbles Regional Transport Minister John Delaney said the Central station is an example in how we can improve the quality of life for Dubliners, while the Central train station is another example of how we have the opportunity to build a city on the edge.
He said the new railway station will “reinforce Dublin’s place as a global financial centre and set us on a new trajectory for regional development”.
