Quintain has announced that leading Irish retailer Centra has agreed to become the anchor tenant for the retail centre in St Marnock’s Bay in Portmarnock. When completed, St Marnock’s Bay will eventually contain 1,200 homes and a new public park.
The addition of Centra, in a 3,200 sq ft unit fronting onto Station Road, will add a high profile retail amenity to St Marnock’s Bay and its surrounds.
Quintain plans to deliver approximately 1,200 residential units on its 98 acres of land in Portmarnock, located close to Portmarnock Village, and Portmarnock Strand. To date, over 270 homes have been completed with an additional 133 homes to be completed in early 2022. Planning has been lodged for the next phase of 172 homes, together with a new public park.
The retail centre is due for completion in late July with a target opening date in Q3 2022. Savills is the letting agent for the Centre.
Michael Hynes, Joint Managing Director, Quintain Ireland said: “We are delighted to welcome Centra to this new retail centre, which will provide much needed facilities for the existing and planned residential communities in the area. The development of the Portmarnock landbank is progressing at pace and providing an excellent mix of traditional style 2-,3-, and 4-bedroom houses in a prime location in Portmarnock, adjoining the DART Station. The sales launch of a further phase of the development will commence in Q2 2022.”
