DUBLIN’S DOCKLANDS ARE set to get a huge new office development.

The building will take place on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay on the river’s south side.

The area, known as Capital Dock, extends to 4.8 acres and is one of the largest undeveloped sites in central Dublin.

When completed the building will provide 660,000 square feet of new office space in an area that has seen demand outstripping supply in recent years.

The development

The development will be made up of three structures. The main tower included in the development will stretch up 23 storeys. 204 residential units will also be provided across three of the buildings.

There is also a focus on open spaces as part of the development, with a 1.5-acre site set aside for a public park, a cultural space and leisure and retail units.

The site has been designed by Irish architecture firm O’Mahony Pike and is said to draw upon “the architecture of Dublin’s industrial and docklands’ heritage, with waterfront views from three sides of the development”.

Nama involvement

Building on the site is set to begin before the end of the year, with the first office spaces becoming available by mid-2017.

The development is being carried out by US-based international real estate company Kennedy Wilson in a joint venture with Nama.

Speaking about the new development, Brendan McDonagh, the CEO of Nama, said, “This is another major and significant step in NAMA’s programme of investment to make the Dublin Docklands a better place to invest, create jobs or find a home.”
