THE FORMER BANK of Ireland headquarters on Dublin’s Lower Baggot Street has today got another new tenant.

Global medical company Shire is moving into 76,000 sq. ft of office space at Miesian Plaza.

It’s expected that about 300 employees of the company will be based in the south inner-city site by the end of June as the company moves from its current headquarters in Citywest.

As well as the service centre now on Baggot Street, the company also runs a manufacturing facility at Piercetown in Meath.

The Miesian Plaza site is being redeveloped after the departure of its former tenants and in total comprises 218,724 sq.ft. of office space.

The buildings were mostly vacated in 2008 and were bought by businessman Larry Goodman in 2012.

The buildings were then redesigned by architects Scott Tallon Walker.

The Department of Health is another one of the new tenants of the redeveloped building as part of its move away from Hawkins House.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Mary Mitchell O’Connor were among those who were at Miesian Plaza this morning for the opening of Shire’s new headquarters.

Shire’s products are available in more than 100 countries and specifically serve customers with rare diseases.
