Planning permission for a €40m redevelopment and extension of the Red Mall at Blanchardstown Shopping Centre has been granted by the local authority.
The approval paves the way for the creation of up to 300 more jobs at the Dublin location, which is the country's second-largest shopping centre.
It will see the construction of a single, 40,000 sq ft unit, as well as 18 standard units.
Multi Corporation, Blackstone's pan-European retail platform, manages the Blanchardstown Shopping Centre on behalf of the $9bn (€7.7bn) Blackstone fund that acquired the mall for €950m from Green Property last year.
When it first announced the planned extension to the shopping facility in September, Multi Corporation said the building work involved would support 250 construction jobs. The centre currently supports 5,500 jobs.
