AN OFFICE BUILDING designed by the architect behind Central Bank has been revamped and put back on the market.

The One Building on Dublin’s Grand Canal Street was opened in 1972 after being designed by Sam Stephenson, but has been renovated by Jones Investments, who redeveloped the Google headquarters on Barrow Street.

The work on the 45,000 square foot office building cost €7 million and includes offices over seven floors, with 44 underground car parking spots.

It includes solar-glazed windows, façade treatment, raised floors, mechanical heating and cooling system, new lifts, new cores, fire systems, refurbished external areas, a basketball court and shower and changing areas.

The office comes to the market at a time when a lack of office space in the capital is being called a serious threat to overseas investment.

The ESRI says that just 5% of office space in the capital currently available, Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is under threat.

Renting office space in the One Building will set you back €49.50 per square foot and €3,500 per car parking space.

Speaking at the launch today, Aisling Tannam, with letting agents DTZ Sherry FitzGerald, said that the area remains popular:

“The convenience of the Grand Canal area, which remains in significant demand, makes it ideal for a company looking to locate their business in the heart of Dublin City where they would join high end companies including Google, Facebook, Accenture, Airbnb and William Fry to name but a few.”
