The Cosgrave Property Group, in partnership with IPUT plc, will launch ‘The Exchange’, a new premium Grade A office building located at the heart of the original IFSC (Irish Financial Services Centre) within Dublin’s Central Business District, at an event in Dublin City Centre this evening. The Exchange will provide 9,750m² of office space over six floors. The building is being developed by the Cosgrave Property Group with funding provided by IPUT plc and John Sisk & Sons as the main contractor. When completed and available for letting in in October 2017, The Exchange will be the first new Grade A office building constructed within the original phase of Dublin’s IFSC since 2003.
Savills and JLL are seeking a new HQ occupier for either the entirety, or on a floor by floor basis for the building which will accommodate 1,200 people when complete. Up to 100 people will be employed on site during the peak of the construction.
Designed by KMD Architects, The Exchange is a 6-storey over basement building with an imposing projected glass and granite façade, full floor-to-ceiling glazing and a stunning full height central atrium pouring natural light to each of its six floors. Its upper floors will provide extensive views across the IFSC and the wider Dublin skyline. Floor plates of 5,791m² have been designed for maximum efficiency and flexibility, creating workspace with A3 energy efficiency which can adjust and split efficiently from 1,345m² responding to the changing needs of business.
The Exchange is centrally located on the Docklands Luas line and adjacent to the Citi Group building, just 50 metres from the CHQ Building and five minutes’ walk from Connolly Station. It is surrounded by many of the world’s leading financial services brands within the IFSC including KPMG, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, SIG and Zurich, PwC, Morgan Stanley, and BNY Mellon.
Its unrivalled connectivity to local, national and international transport nodes will create Ireland’s most connected new office building - LUAS, train, DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transport), bus and bike stations are all within a few minutes’ walk. Dublin Airport is approximately 25 minutes by road via the Dublin Port Tunnel.
