Dunne & Crescenzi for Blackrock
popular Dublin restaurant chain Dunne & Crescenzi has reached an agreement with Savills to operate a new 350 sq m (3,750 sq ft) restaurant at Blackrock Centre in south Dublin.
The deal represents the first new restaurant for Dunne & Crescenzi in recent years and will bring the number of outlets it operates in Dublin and Kildare to six. Since opening for business on South Frederick Street in 1999, the restaurant has extended its reach north of the River Liffey to Ormond Quay, to Sandymount and Dundrum Town Centre on the south side of the capital, and to Kildare Village.
Describing the letting as a "major restaurant coup for Blackrock", Colin Kavanagh of Savills said: "This deal is the culmination of significant and active property management by Blackrock Centre's owners, which included negotiating this agreement with Dunne & Crescenzi to facilitate this and other forthcoming deals. This letting not only improves the consumer offer and tenant mix but is expected to add significantly to the overall rent and hence capital value of the scheme."
The Blackrock Centre has more than 40 retail units and 400 car parking spaces. The complex is anchored by SuperValu and includes a number of leading fashion retailers and cafes including Lisa Perkins, Next and Vanilla Pod.
