New video shows 3d modelling of Wexford’s Trinity Wharf development
A new video shared by Wexford County Council shows in the detail the proposed development at Trinity Wharf. The Trinity Wharf site will facilitate a new sustainable urban quarter with high-quality public realm, mix of modern office space, hotel, leisure and residential, a landmark cultural building, 58 residential units and a multi-storey car park.
The leisure and residential development includes the provision of a 64 berth marina, a new boardwalk linking Trinity Wharf with Paul Quay and the Crescent, new public realm spaces and an urban greenway. It will provide a location at the south end of Wexford town that can be adapted for use for outdoor events, performances and festivals.
The development of Trinity Wharf will significantly enhance Wexford Town profile as an attractive environment for international companies seeking to locate in the county, or for existing companies looking to expand, providing property solutions that will meet investors’ expectations. Trinity Wharf will serve new businesses and the local community. It will create the capacity for people to live and work in a town centre area, supporting the local economy and making Wexford a viable location for FDI investment.
Strategically located on the most prominent site in Wexford Town, Trinity Wharf boasts unrivalled panoramic views from its river front position. This 10-acre town centre site with its strategic location at Wexford Harbour provides an unrivalled development and commercial opportunity to create:
- A mix of modern office space with 200,000 sq ft commercial office space
- Hotel accommodation
- Restaurants and retail units
- Landmark cultural and events building with conference facilities
- 64 berth marina, a new boardwalk linking Trinity Wharf with Paul Quay and the Crescent, and an urban greenway
- High quality public realm
- Residential apartments
To date €20 million has been allocated under the Urban Regeneration Fund / Project 2040. A further €7m has been ringfenced by the elected members of Wexford Co Council demonstrating the support for this initiative to position Wexford for Foreign Direct Investment. Cllr. George Lawlor, Cathaoirleach Wexford County Council commended his fellow elected members for their leadership in supporting the vision for Trinity Wharf by prioritising funding of €7m securing a total of €27 million to date by the public sector. He further stated that “The collaboration between Wexford County Council, the business sector and the local community creates a dynamic partnership to provide a wonderful legacy for future generations here in County Wexford at the home of the former Star Iron Works”’.
