Abstract

In Dublin the port remained active through the second half of the twentieth century, when containerization and the need for larger areas for stocking and handling cargo from ships caused the activity to be moved towards the eastern edges of the city. The process to regenerate the city-port landscape, which the city undertook in the 1980’s and which has made Dublin one of the most competitive of European cities since the 1990’s, was guided prevalently by the central and specific development agencies. The regeneration of the port waterfront has involved a growing area, including the 526 hectares inside the abandoned Dublin Docklands industrial area and the eastern zone of the city of Dublin. The 2008 Docklands Master Plan delineates a general picture, over a ten-year period, of the area’s regeneration with projects for infrastructure and transportation, building and economics, with the particular goal of developing tourism, culture and art. The investments have made it possible to transform the Docklands into a consolidated shopping area, with new residential areas, and an office district which now houses the headquarters of many companies. The project for the Docklands is one of the most visionary and ambitious projects at the European level, with a recent new Master Plan for the Port of Dublin that proposes several alternatives and opportunities for the development and enhancement of the area from 2012 to 2040.
