7/11/2014 | RTE

Work has started on the €50m expansion of shopping outlet Kildare Village, which will bring the total number of people employed there to more than 1,000 when it is finished in 2015.

The contract for the project has been awarded to Collen Construction and will see the creation of 120 construction jobs.

The extended village will create an additional 380 jobs as 36 new boutiques are added. This will bring the total number there to 100.

The expansion plans also include two restaurants and a visitor centre, as well as 437 new parking spaces.

It will add an additional 5,544 square metres to Kildare Village, increasing the total size to 16,570 square metres.

Kildare Village first opened in 2006 and has seen consistent growth year on year since that.
