IPUT the largest owner of offices in Dublin, has been granted permission by An Bord Pleanála for a 450,000 sq ft office development at Two, Three and Four Wilton Park, Dublin 2. One Wilton Park, which comprises 150,000 sq ft is already under construction and this decision clears the way for IPUT to complete the full re-development of its estate at Wilton Park.
IPUT plc, Chief Executive Officer, Niall Gaffney, said:
IPUT strategically assembled the Wilton Park estate over the past decade with a vision to create an entirely new city quarter centred around its park. The first phase, One Wilton Park, is already under construction and we will now look to commence the development of Two, Three & Four Wilton Park in 2020.
Wilton Park and its public spaces will be carefully designed and landscaped to realise true ‘place-making’ in this part of Dublin city. The entire Wilton Park scheme will deliver over 600,000 sq ft of office and new retail/restaurant spaces which will be completed to the highest global standard in design and sustainability.
The Wilton Park estate comprises the former Fitzwilton House, Wilton Park House, Gardner House and their associated public spaces – principally a one-acre park. Wilton Park will deliver a total of 600,000 sq ft of office & new retail/restaurant space – creating a new city quarter which could cater for up to 6,000 workers and reinforce Dublin as a key location for foreign direct investment.
Construction has commenced on the 150,000 sq ft development at One Wilton Park, which has been fully pre-let to LinkedIn and is scheduled for completion in late 2020. Development of the remaining three inter-connecting office buildings, Two Three & Four Wilton Park, comprising 450,000 sq ft, is scheduled to begin in 2020 and targeted for completion in 2023.
Two, Three & Four Wilton Park have a combined total floor area of c. 450,000 sq ft over six floors plus ground and lower ground floors. At ground level, the development will include café, restaurant and retail facilities centred around a new public square.
The Wilton Park development has been designed to meet the highest sustainability, efficiency and digital connectivity standards including LEED Platinum, WiredScore Platinum, WELL Gold and a BER A3 Energy rating.
