Council Updated on Innovation Quarter, Tallaght

10 Feb 21

The South Dublin County Council lands north of Belgard Square North have since 2018, been subject of a masterplan study and a series of resulting projects. These projects include recent Part 8 approvals for affordable rental apartments, a new Urban Plaza and linear park and Tallaght Innovation Centre.  

Delivery of infrastructure to support these schemes include the new Cookstown-Belgard link road, which is nearing completion, and the Tallaght District Heating network. In conjunction with these developments - a bespoke identity for this new urban district has been developed. The new quarter will be IQ Tallaght or Innovation Quarter Tallaght, an address which will distinguish these exciting new developments.  

The strategic development of IQ Tallaght will provide key links from Cookstown to Tallaght Town Centre, as well as key links between the hospital and the Airton extension.  

The proposed overall development has a budget of approximately €50million. Construction on the various projects are due to commence in Q3/Q4 2021.
