The shopping centre is driven by Dunnes Stores, Anchor retailer which includes both grocery and drapery. A common mall with elegant tile surface finishes accesses ten retail / restaurant units with further units being accessed externally. Trading retailers include Unicare Pharmacy, The Bagel Factory/O'Briens Sandwiches, Newsrail, House of Hair & Beauty, Noel's Barbers, Tanning Rooms, O'Coilleans Butchers and Quality Drycleaners. Externally Fleurtatious Flower shop, Figure 8 and the HSE's Primary Care Centre can be accessed. The first floor incorporates either office or restaurant/fitness opportunities with an expansive double height glazed lobby area. The retail units themselves are well designed with units varying in size to suit operator's requirements.
The first phase of office development comprises nine own-door offices which have a high quality finish with all the expected criteria such as raised access floors, tiled bathrooms and gas heating and kitchenette. Flexible office layouts are available depending on each business' requirements.
The creche is ideally located within this development to service the rapidly expanding residential community, primarily The Gallops, as well as surrounding commercial schemes. A secure outdoor play area is provided adjacent to an open landscaped area looking over the Leopardstown Race Course. This is being operated by Bright Horizons.
The completion of the M50 motorway linking it with the M11 opens up an extensive catchment area within easy reach of the centre. Leopardstown Shopping Centre can be reached by both the Carrickmines and Sandyford exits 14 & 15 on the M50. Similarly the recently opened LUAS Green line extension along the Ballyogan Road has the Leopardstown Valley stop right outside the Centre.
This is one of the few areas of South Dublin with not only an affluent existing population but there are many surrounding parcels of land which are zoned and set for residential development in the coming years. Couple this with excellent transport facilities both public and private and the limited availability of nearby competition you have a vibrant neighbourhood centre.
