London, W1S 2JJ
Mountpark Logistics EU has been given the green light by An Bord Pleanála (ABP) to proceed with the development of a €40m logistics and industrial hub at Baldonnel in south county Dublin.
Construction of the scheme, which is being billed by the developers as the "largest speculative logistics development in Ireland", is expected to get under way this summer.
While some 120 jobs will be created during the construction phase, 850 people are expected to be employed by the companies that occupy the hub.
A further 150 ancillary roles are being anticipated by the project's promoters.
"This project is a significant development for Mountpark and one that we have already invested heavily in," said Mountpark CEO Philip O'Callaghan.
"With the increasing importance of ecommerce, purpose-built logistics facilities are strategically important. This site at Baldonnel is ideally located to serve Dublin and the eastern region."
Mr O'Callaghan added: "We know, from the discussions we have already held with businesses and development bodies, that there is strong demand for well-located hubs such as this.
"We believe that the project will facilitate agencies such as the IDA and South Dublin County Council in attracting companies to the region."
