IPUT Real Estate, Ireland’s leading property company and the largest owner of offices and logistics assets in Dublin, announces that it is adding two further locations for Making it Work – its flexible work space solution.  The first location at Pearse Street, comprising 4 floors was launched in January, is now fully let to Strava, the digital sports company and Datadog, the monitoring and security platform for cloud applications.

New Making it Work Locations

IPUT intends to grow its flexible offering to up to 5% of its 2.4 million sq. ft. prime office portfolio in Dublin and the two latest Making it Work locations will come to the market in the third quarter of 2022. The new locations will add an additional 13,400 sq. ft. doubling the existing Making it Work footprint and bringing the number of spaces on the platform to six.

The 10,200 sq. ft. penthouse floor at Riverside 2, a 73,500 sq. ft. building on Dublin’s south docks, will offer 360-degree views of the city and a full wrap-around terrace. The other new location will be the 3,200 sq. ft. ground floor at Styne House on Hatch Street in Dublin’s city centre. Styne House is a 70,000 sq. ft. building currently undergoing refurbishment. The building upgrade will include a new façade, reception, occupier facilities, and a new street-level café.

Niall Gaffney, Chief Executive, IPUT Real Estate, commented:

Simon McEvoy, Making it Work lead, IPUT Real Estate said:

Collaborating with companies of the calibre of Strava and Datadog, working alongside them to provide flexible space that meets their specific requirements has been phenomenal experience.
