The receiver of the Boland's Quay site in Dublin has said they are aiming to appoint a main contractor to the site by the end of July.

Planning for the development of Boland's Quay, which is situated at the Boland's Mill site in Dublin's Docklands, was approved last July. 

Receiver Mark Reynolds of Savills said that significant progress has been made on advancing the project which is due for completion in 2018.

He said that demolition works to remove the existing silos are well underway and due for completion in June. 

A specialist conservation contractor will also be appointed by the end this month to restore the existing protected mill buildings which will be converted for commercial and residential use.

Designed by Burke Kennedy Doyle, Boland's Quay will provide three new buildings comprising about 36,851 square metres of office, residential, retail and cultural space. 

The development will also involve the development of a new civic plaza looking onto the waterfront at Grand Canal Dock.
