A shopping centre in south Dublin is to offer several new retail units as part of a refurbishment.

Works began on Blackrock Village Centre at the end of January this year, and are due to finish in May 2020.

The changes will bring 1,501 sq.m. of retail space to the Dublin market.

The centre will extend to 6,176.6 sq m upon completion and is anchored by a 2,712 sq m SuperValu.

The renovation of the centre includes a complete upgrade of the common areas, realignment of the malls and circulation and the installation of a mostly glazed covering - which will retain natural ventilation.

There will also be a new façade and entrance off Frascati Road.

While its car parking facilities will also be upgraded, with the introduction of a new exit onto Rock Hill.

Constructed in 1984, Blackrock Centre is located midway between Dublin city centre and Dalkey.

It has over 400,000 people living within a 20-minute drive.

Savills Ireland who, along with BNP Paribas Real Estate are acting as joint agents on the centre, say they expect demand for the limited number of vacant units to be strong.

Colin Kavanagh of Savills said: "Blackrock's pedigree as a suburban commercial hub is well-established. Home to a myriad of large retail and financial houses, the village is a demand destination for many employers looking to open a base or grow an existing office in the area.

"We expect demand for retail space in Blackrock Village Centre to be strong as a result.

"We are looking to build on the convenience nature of the centre to add brands and uses that will appeal to the specific catchment".

Aviva took full ownership of the property in 2014.
