In April the works for the construction for 100 new units in Phase 1 went to the tender stage. Currently Dublin City Council are reviewing the bids from the contractors, a report on the preferred contractor is to be sent to the Department of the Environment for approval this week. Once approved and a contract is signed a mobilization period will involve the site being prepared and a series of activities before the work can commence. The timeline indicated by the City Council is for workers to be on site within the next two months.
Once this works begin Dublin City Council will look to develop plans for Phase 2 ( Long Blocks) with the objective of progressing this phase of the Masterplan under Part 8 of Planning & Development Act following consultation with residents and the Joint Regeneration Board.

News on the new Dolphin Park Development
Last year the City Council selected FOLD Housing Association to build and manage the new Senior Citizens complex in Dolphin Park. The housing association and their architects Austin, Reedy & Company are finalizing their plan for the new housing on the site adjacent to the current Dolphin Park. They issued a preferred approach in April and following the final part of the community consultation process with residents in Dolphin Park it is expected that the housing association will submit a planning application in July 2016, with the expectation that the construction work would commence in April 2017.
