The £300m mixed-use centre of Adamstown, Ireland's only independent new town, has been submitted for planning approval by London urban designer Metropolitan Workshop and Irish developer Castlethorne Construction.

Adamstown is being developed 10 miles from Dublin. Covering 154,000m2 it is one of the largest mixed-use planning applications ever submitted in Ireland. Seven Irish architects, including O’Donnel & Tuomey and O’Mahoney Pike, have been appointed to design schemes in the town centre.
