VU.CITY Dublin saves time and money for anyone involved in designing, planning and development.
Being able to show proposals clearly and in context using a 15cm accurate and fully interactive 3D model of Dublin helps maximise the chance of go-ahead for a project and its acceptance by the local community.
Dublin is a hotbed of innovation. The planning system is set for an entire overhaul over the coming months, and VU.CITY is supporting the digital transformation of Irish planning. Local Authorities who are now to authorise approvals locally can use 3D visualization to aid them in understanding development proposals visually.
There has been a great response from the Irish market since VU.CITY launched the Dublin model in early 2021. The value of transparency from working with VU.CITY Dublin is recognised by those working in private and public sectors.
VU.CITY is acknowledged as the most advanced 3D model of Dublin, with users including Dublin City Council, Savills, 3D Design Bureau, Reddy Architecture + Urbanism, O'Mahony Pike Architects, Hines, Henry J Lyons and many more.
Users of VU.CITY’s Dublin are using the model to shape some of the largest and ambitious masterplans in Europe. The accuracy and vastness of the model, coupled with design and planning functionality and data, is helping lead to better decision-making and positive outcomes.
Those trying to push boundaries in height, are able to use VU.CITY as an evidentiary tool to show exact viewpoints and understand just how taller schemes will impact. This is key in this historically low-laying city.
The Dublin City Region plays a key role in Ireland’s economy and is home to some of the world’s leading technology companies and financial institutions. With Brexit having moved many firms to the Emerald Isle, the city is rapidly expanding and the need for well-designed and thought-out places are needed more than ever before.
With that, housing is the main real estate theme for Dublin. A brand new 'Housing for All' Plan has been put in place. A €4 billion per year plan – with over 300,000 homes set to be delivered in Ireland by 2030. VU.CITY will help to speed up this much needed housing and ensure that good quality designs get the approval.
€500 million has recently been allocated to bring further pioneering development to Dublin. With VU.CITY, you can make better design and planning decisions for the future of Dublin.

Realise a site’s potential by viewing and assessing recently consented developments across Dublin.
Assess multiple initial massing options at an early stage and GEA potential quickly.
Easily import your designs from external 3D software (such as Revit, Rhino, SketchUp & 3ds Max) into the Dublin model and test how they will work in situ.
Quickly view and assess the initial impact of light from your proposed developments.
Conduct high-level townscape and visual impact assessments. Agree on key views to analyse further. Select key views and confidentially present your proposals to take stakeholder on the journey of design.
