An Bord Pleanála has granted Wexford County Council planning approval for the Trinity Wharf development in Wexford town.
The project will see the redevelopment of a 5.5 hectare brownfield site in Wexford Harbour into a mixed-use urban quarter featuring several five and six-storey buildings, including a hotel, a residential apartment building, three office buildings and a multi-storey carpark.
The design also features a cultural/performance centre, a mixed-use restaurant and café building, a 64-berth marina and a boardwalk providing a pedestrian and cyclist connection to Paul Quay at the southern end of the quayside.
The main entrance to the site from Trinity Street will be redesigned, with a level crossing providing access across the Dublin to Rosslare Railway Line into the site.
The Trinity Wharf development will act as a catalyst for economic growth and socio-economic development by enhancing Wexford town’s profile as an attractive environment for international companies seeking to locate in the county, or for existing companies looking to expand. It will also drive the regeneration of the wider urban area by providing a vibrant, diverse, multi-use quarter with open vistas across Wexford Harbour.
