Developer Crawford Hoying announced last week a small extension to their giant 1162-unit development planned in Dublin’s “Bridge Street Corridor” district. Known as Bridge Park West, the 42-unit mixed-use condo, office and retail development will sit in Historic Dublin on North High Street, just north of the main intersection at Bridge Street.

“We identified the North High Street site as a tremendous mixed-use location early on,” said Stephen Brothers-McGrew, Marketing Manager at Crawford Hoying. “It’s a gorgeous riverfront site with great views that will serve to blend the Historic Dublin and Bridge Park areas fostering a single, continuous ‘Downtown Dublin’ experience.”

The development will include approximately 20,000 square feet of retail and 20,000 square feet of office space, and will connect to the larger Bridge Park development by way of a new pedestrian bridge that is being constructed as a part of a larger pedestrian infrastructure improvement project for the area.

“Bridge Park West will represent a slightly quieter, slower pace experience more representative of Historic Dublin than we anticipate from the more active Bridge Park, but residents and businesses will still just be a short walk from all the action of the east side,” added Brothers-McGrew.

Both of Crawford Hoying’s Bridge Park projects are expected to be reviewed soon by the City of Dublin, and construction may begin as early as September.

Dublin’s Bridge Street Corridor master plan has attracted attention from several other developers since its debut, including CASTO, which has proposed a 392-unit residential development off Tuller Road, and OHM, which has proposed a 27-unit mixed-use project in Historic Dublin.

“The addition of high end condominiums on the west side of the river was really a response to the market,” said Brothers-McGrew. “Initially we had imagined that the units on the Bride Park West site would be for-rent apartments. It wasn’t long before a clear need emerged for a high end, for-sale residential product.”

    That’s it… I’m moving back. I really do miss that area. I’m sure it will be VERY pricey though.

    Why? Why is this needed? Why can’t there be peace and quiet AND green space? Being in the real estate game myself, one item that has always bothered me that people seem to forget the mistakes previously made. Why do we need this many units being built at once? Why can’t we have some green space, parks, open areas? The greed displayed by our city and these developers is never ending. Everyone forgets that Crawford Hoying was near default just a few years ago and the city of Dublin coffers are brimming with cash. So, why do we need this? To make a few dollars in development fees and a few dollars in tax revenue. God forbid we actually leave a legacy of friendly environmental development for our children. If there’s any open space, some developer has some plan to throw up some Class C apartments and condos which will sit empty when the next recession comes. Just look at the miserbaly failed strip retail center on Riverside in Old Dublin. That place is 90% empty. So why would this work? because it’s Class C apartmernts made to look like Class A. Has anyone ever reallly looked at Crawfor Hoying developments. it’sa junk made to look good and then they charge an arm and leg. I’m just sick of the greed. It’s never ending. Just stop already.

    @Stop the Development:

    Generally green space sucks if no one is around to enjoy it. If you want the whole city to be greenspace, then, there is a lot of it beyond I-270.

    “Just look at the miserbaly failed strip retail center on Riverside in Old Dublin. That place is 90% empty. So why would this work?”

    I’m no expert, but that strip mall had no walkable component to it, was in a difficult area to access by car (hard to get back on the roads due to traffic), and was ugly.

    They are reserving these units at $300k to $1.5M. I hardly doubt they are class C crap. As columbusmike pointed out that strip mall was built as a STRIP MALL. They are talking about building mixed use, structured parking, walkable style development. This is the best project the city has outside of downtown/SN.

    And you’re open space comments are laughable. I guess basically every major city is an embarrassment by your standards.

    After much thought, I do now see the positives of this development. My initial reaction was that more concerned of the ever increasing infrastructure issue we have in Dublin. Positives will include increased tax revenue which makes it way to the schools. Crawford Hoying is a great company who does build quality product. My reaction was that of a citizen concerned with an already troublesome traffic issue. After some thought, I think this will make a great development by some great developers. Cheers!

      The great thing about urban infill development is that it requires very little in the way of new infrastructure development. Building on top of a corn field requires new utilities, roads, water lines, etc. Building in the historic core of the city means that all of that infrastructure is already in place. It’s an optimization of resources rather than an additional taxpayer burden.

      It’s a valid concern. There will be some affects on traffic in the immediate area. It’s already a fairly congested area and they aren’t really adding any public transportation. So imagine all those extra commuters heading in and out of that development at 8 AM And 5 PM. It’s going to affect some of the arteries in the area to some extent. Hopefully they maximize the number access streets in and out in as many different directions as possible.
