Italian restaurant Dunne & Crescenzi is to open a new location in Blackrock Centre on 6 February. The 350 square metre location will be the chains first new opening in a number of years, bringing its total number of restaurants in Dublin and Kildare to six reports the Irish Independent.
Colin Kavanagh of Savills said: "This deal is the culmination of significant and active property management by Blackrock Centre's owners, which included negotiating this agreement with Dunne & Crescenzi to facilitate this and other forthcoming deals. This letting not only improves the consumer offer and tenant mix but is expected to add significantly to the overall rent and hence capital value of the scheme."
