IPUT appoints three international design and placemaking firms to lead long-term research study, Making Impact

PUT Real Estate (‘IPUT’), Ireland’s leading property company and the largest owner of offices and logistics assets in Dublin, announces the launch of Making Impact; one of the world’s first ever studies to value the impact of placemaking on a city neighbourhood on a longitudinal basis.

IPUT has appointed three international placemaking and design agencies – Hassell, PRD and Gehl – who will collaborate to assess the social, economic, environmental, and cultural impact of placemaking at its Wilton Park development in Dublin 2.

Wilton Park is a 600,000 sq. ft. mixed used scheme scheduled to be completed by the end of 2023. The estate incorporates 580,000 sq. ft. of offices and 20,000 sq. ft. of food & beverage space surrounding a one-acre city park and a new streetscape.

IPUT issued a detailed research report, Making Place, in 2020, which it subsequently updated in 2022, to consider the impact of placemaking on the workplace and wider neighbourhood. That report highlighted the key considerations for asset owners, developers, occupiers, and city planners in thinking about the next generation of workplaces and the future of our cities. IPUT Real Estate, in partnership with Hassell, PRD and Gehl, will now build on that initial research to understand the positive wider impact of placemaking through a follow-on study: Making Impact.
