Last night, Dublin’s South William Street was announced the winner of the Great Street Award during the 2019 Urbanism Awards in London. The street was shortlisted with other streets – Argyle Street in Glasgow and Kirkgate in Leeds.

South William Street was proposed by the Dublin City Architects office and the application was supported by DublinTown.

DublinTown was asked to assist in preparing the application and in making arrangements for the assessment visit. For the application they used their own research, footfall data and analysis. They also worked with the Dublin City Architects to plan the assessment visit. 

This visit, in September 2018, included guided tours of the street and key buildings, as well as introductions and interviews with a wide range of businesses on the street such as the Powerscourt Centre, the Irish Georgian Society, Grogan’s Pub, Aspire Digital, Taste Food Co and Platform 61.

Speaking last night, DublinTown CEO Richard Guiney said, "We feel that South William Street is a shining example of what can be achieved when businesses work together to achieve a shared vision in cooperation with a supportive City Council. I want to pay special thanks to those businesses who took the time to meet with the assessors during their visit. Their pride and passion for their street was evident to all. We look forward to seeing the area develop further with the planned improvements outlined in the Grafton Area plan."
