A PLAN HAS been submitted that would see the building of Dublin’s tallest office building.

The Exo Building has been proposed by receivers from Grant Thornton to be built beside the 3Arena at the Point Village.

At 73 metres, the building would be the tallest storeyed building in Dublin and would be five metres taller than Cork’s Elysian. The 224,500 sq. ft building could be home to 2,000 office workers.

NAMA is funding the planning application as part of its overall commitment to facilitate the delivery of new development within the provisions of the Dockland’s Strategic Development Zone.


Stephen Tennant from Grant Thornton said that the application, which has gone to Dublin City Council, showed that the Point Village was growing.

“The Point Village has the potential to become Dublin’s newest commercial, entertainment and leisure hub.

The economic downturn stalled its progress, but due to the strong demand for quality office and retail space in Dublin, it is now the opportune time to recommence development of a new commercial and entertainment hub.
