Land Development Agency Announces Plans for Digital Hub Site

Land Development Agency Announces Plans for Digital Hub Site – Shane Adlum discusses the new plans for the redevelopment of the Digital Hub site on Thomas Street.

The Land Development Agency (LDA) have announced plans for the development of the Digital Hub Campus in The Liberties which will see 550 new homes built on the site.

The LDA’s masterplan for the 3.7-hectare site in the Liberties will be an affordable housing led redevelopment which will also include a number of community, cultural and commercial facilities as well as new pedestrian and cycle routes.
The masterplan contains plans for 550 new homes and will consist largely of affordable and social housing. These homes will be a mix of new builds and the redevelopment of the upper floors in existing structures. The ground floors of those existing buildings have been designated as mixed use.

Saint Patrick’s Tower has been earmarked for cultural and community use, while Watling warehouse is set for residential homes, public spaces and new pedestrian and cycle routes.
The plans have been given the working title Pear Tree Crossing after the tree that stands next to Saint Patrick’s Tower, said to be the oldest fruit bearing tree in Ireland.

The announcement that the Digital hub was to close came as a shock to most as it has been hugely successful since it was established in 2003 with companies like Stripe, Havok, Eventbrite, Etsy, Slack and Amazon all calling the Dublin 8 campus their home at some stage. It had been expected to close by June 2022 but now looks likely to continue operating until at least 2025.

The Pear Tree Crossing masterplan is likely to be finalised early this year following the LDA’s public consultation process. For more information visit
