A LONG-awaited opening date for the Ferrybank Shopping Centre is being reviewed in the wake of last month’s High Court decision involving Dunnes Stores and Holtglen Ltd, the developer of the shopping centre.

A LONG-awaited opening date for the Ferrybank Shopping Centre is being reviewed in the wake of last month’s High Court decision involving Dunnes Stores and Holtglen Ltd, the developer of the shopping centre.

April 3 of this year had been named as an opening date back in November, but the court decision was then issued late last month.

Savills Ireland, which is undertaking the letting of some 20 shops in the main mall, said yesterday (Tuesday) that an opening date could not be determined before the period for a potential appeal has passed. Routinely, there are 21 days in which to appeal such a decision to the Supreme Court.

“At present we are now reviewing our leasing strategy and potential opening dates in line with the recent court decision, however this maybe subject to Supreme Court appeal,” a Savills spokesperson said. “Therefore we cannot announce anything formal until the time for an appeal to be lodged expires.”
