The Grangegorman Development Agency (GDA) is a statutory agency established in 2006 by the Irish Government under the Grangegorman Development Agency Act 2005 to redevelop the 30 ha (70 acre) former St. Brendan’s Hospital grounds in Dublin’s North Inner City.
The GDA’s mission is to transform Grangegorman into a vibrant community that encompasses a world class, integrated and inclusive education, health, and community campus. This will be achieved by delivering a built environment that is in keeping with the Grangegorman Masterplan Vision.
In doing so, the Agency’s vision is to be locally and internationally recognised as an exemplar of community urban regeneration, focused on education and health. Our values are collaboration, delivery focussed, design quality, integrity and sustainability.
The Grangegorman development consists of a number of interrelated projects across the education, health and community sectors, including:
- Consolidation of TU Dublin’s city centre activities into a new urban campus which will ultimately bring some 22,000 students and 2,000 staff together at a single location
- Redevelopment of mental health and community health care services
- Research, innovation and commercial developments to drive employment creation
- Enhanced physical environment with improved permeability, including sport and recreational facilities, arts and cultural spaces
- The delivery of a new national school for D7 Educate Together
