KCAP Architects&Planners together with an international expert team has been selected to develop a masterplan underpinning the planning and development of a 70 ha site, centrally located adjacent to Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport, Ireland.
The masterplan will facilitate the regeneration of this area of Dublin Airport and the development of High Technology facilities such as offices, research and development centres and associated manufacturing units.
Dublin Airport first opened its doors in 1940 and passenger traffic has steadily grown to approximately 20 million passengers per year. The supporting development was largely focused on the airside operation, and the opportunity is to now focus on the central landside site as part of the masterplan.
Similar to other European airports, Dublin Airport has the potential to become a business centrality within the Dublin agglomeration forming a meeting place for global exchange. The masterplan will be completed towards the end of 2013.
