Pavilions Shopping Centre, Swords

The Pavilions Shopping Centre, Swords, is one of the largest shopping centres in the country. Working as part of an expert, multi-disciplinary, international team, Stephen Little & Associates lodged a planning application for Pavilions, Phase 3 in August 2008.

The Phase 3 development comprises a mixed use major town centre scheme of: -

  • 137 retail units, including 2 retail anchor units,
  • 35 restaurant / café units,
  • 1 public house,
  • Office Use c. 15,593 sq m,
  • 2 childcare facilities,
  • 2 community rooms,
  • 1 radio station,
  • 1 medical centre,
  • A management suite for the Town Centre,
  • A total of 191 residential units comprising  23 1-bedroom units, 140 2-bedroom units and 28 3-bedroom units in a mix of apartments and duplexes,
  • 5 new open and sheltered streets at Level +1.  Primary streets called up as ‘Central Street’,  ‘The Rise’ and secondary streets called up as ‘Southern Street, ‘Shop Street’, ‘Mall Street’ and ‘Retail Street’,
  • Creation of new urban spaces, called up as ‘Pavilions Place’ at Level +1 and ‘Malahide Place’ at Level 0/Level +1,
  • Replacement of 3 existing vehicular entrances with, 1 temporary construction entrance in place of the existing emergency entrance at the R132, and 3 new permanent vehicular entrances and associated access roads for use during construction and operational phases,
  • 3,145 new car parking spaces, and
  • 625 bicycle parking spaces.

Two firms of architects were engaged in the design of the proposed scheme, with input from other experts on planning, urban design, civil engineering, traffic & transportation, mechanical and electrical engineering, fire safety, energy efficiency, micro-climate and environmental issues.

As the Planning Consultant, Stephen Little & Associates had direct responsibility for the preparation and/or co-ordination of the following project elements: -

  • Planning appraisal
  • Urban design framework
  • Planning application
  • Environmental Impact Statement
  • Appropriate Assessment screening report
  • Retail Impact Statement
  • Planning application report
  • Residential amenity report
  • Review and quality assessment of architectural, landscape and engineering drawings and reports
  • Review and quality assessment of all consultants’ reports, surveys and assessments
  • Responsibility for lodging the overall planning application  
  • Consultation with and submissions to Fingal County Council – in particular in relation to Swords Strategic Issues Report 2008 - 2014 and Swords Masterplan 2008 - 2014.  

The Pavilions, Phase 3 will expand the centre to over 100,00 sq m, and it is expected to attract over 15 million visitors annually. The Phase 3 development will significantly enhance the comparison retail offering within Swords Town Centre, facilitating the realisation of its role as a ‘Major Town Centre’.

The development of Phase 3 will result in the sustainable integration of Pavilions as a significant and complementary element of Swords Town Centre. A high degree of permeability will be provided through the creation of a new hierarchy of streets and urban spaces, which link with the wider Town Centre area, including the potential future ‘Metro Quarter/Transport Interchange’ and ‘Cultural Quarter’ which will adjoin Pavilions to the east and west respectively.

A close and positive working relationship has been established with Fingal County Council in the ongoing realisation of the Council vision for Swords as an emerging exciting and sustainable new city.
