5 Earlsfort Terrace – the former headquarters of leading Irish law firm Arthur Cox – is undergoing a €20 million refurbishment which will provide 66,000 sq. ft. of Grade A office space. Upon completion in mid-2018, the building will accommodate up to 750 office workers across its 7 floors. 200 construction jobs will be created in the process.
Refurbishment works will include the addition of two new floors – featuring new 2.7 metre floor-to-ceiling heights. Internally, the building will be completely modernised and delivered to LEED Platinum standards. New features will include 3 new high-speed lifts, generous provision of showers, lockers and changing rooms – in addition to 50 car
park spaces and space for 70 bicycles at basement level.
Externally, the building will retain its distinctive mirrored façade and will see the redevelopment of the plaza fronting onto Earlsfort Terrace.

This vibrant new urban space will provide a public amenity for occupiers and visitors alike.
