The Woodbrook masterplan is structured by the existing landscape features, and its proximity to existing and planned strategic infrastructure, including Shanganagh Park and a new DART station.
Three linear open spaces traverse the site, connecting the proposed new community to Shanganagh Park, a regional amenity containing active and passive facilities, which connects to the beach along its eastern edge. Each of these linear spaces has a distinct character and purpose: the western space along the Old Dublin Road preserves the sylvan character of the context and provides an attractive entrance to the scheme. The green axis provides views towards the Little Sugarloaf, and connects the housing areas, the local centre and the school with Shanganagh Park, and the coastal park provides a green buffer between the development and the adjoining golf course.
A generous, tree lined avenue organises circulation within the site, and provides a connection to the proposed DART station at its northern end.
1400 dwellings are proposed, along with a local centre and a primary school.
The local centre is designed to frame a view between the civic plaza and St. James’ Church, fostering a sense of place.
