Ballymore and Sainsbury’s have entered a strategic alliance to develop the 18-acre site, proposing to build up to 2,800 homes, a 130,000-square-foot Sainsbury’s store as well as the creation of a mixed-use scheme including retail, leisure, cultural, community, small business workspace, and educational uses and restoration of the historic canal basin.
