Construction of the €45m office development at One Albert Quay, developed by BAM and John Cleary Developments (JCD) has started.
The seven-storey building will accommodate up to 1,800 workers and create 300 jobs during the construction phase. The project will take 15 months to complete.
It will replace the existing warehouses on the site located opposite the Clarion Hotel.
BAM and JCD have already successfully worked together on the largest office development to be built in Ireland during the teeth of the recession – City Gate Park in Mahon. The complex is now home to companies such as Dell, EMC,RDJ Solicitors, FireEye and VCE.
It is expected that safety company Tyco will be one of the first companies to take up residence at One Albert Quay bringing 500 to 700 employees to the city centre.
A new website One Albert Quay has been launched as we acutely aware of the urgent need for large floor plate offices in the city centre and said these offices will be built to the highest global standards with full LEED accreditation (the US gold standard for sustainability) and use of the latest efficient and sustainable technology.
