Multi Corporation has today announced the commencement of work on a €32 million reconfiguration and extension of Blanchardstown Centre in Dublin, Ireland. The 5,100-sq.m development will comprise eight retail units including Aldi and JD Sports, which will both let flagship units.
Supermarket giant Aldi will open a new 20,000 sq ft store, while sports and fashion retailer JD Sports will take up residence at a new 15,000 sq ft unit. With over 180 stores in total, Blanchardstown Centre is anchored by the recently upgraded Dunnes Stores, as well as M&S, Penneys and Debenhams. Car parking totals 6,750 spaces.
This investment will create 125 permanent positions, with an additional 150-200 jobs created during the construction phase of the project. Blanchardstown Centre currently generates employment for over 5,500 people.
