News Update

January Update

The neighbourhood centre under construction at Jacobs Island is being developed through our joint venture with OBR Construction.  Block 10 is less than a year from delivery and will bring mixed-use to the site with 69 no. residential units, a retail unit, and an ancillary creche.

This development will accommodate over 1,200 employees and bring increased mixed-use to Jacobs Island.

We are delighted to share with you the news that, following An Bord Pleanala’s assessment of the case, planning permission has been granted for the construction of an office and hotel development to be provided in 2 no. blocks at Jacob’s Island.

  • The hotel will contain 165 no. bedrooms, meeting rooms, bar/restaurant, cafe and back of house facilities in a 1-storey to 10-storey over basement building.

The hotel is in a key location, its tower announcing the entrance to Jacob’s Island on the N40, and its public amenity (café, lounges and restaurant) providing animation and activity onto a plaza to its south west and south east.

  • The office building (10,632 sqm GFA) will provide 8,361 sqm net office floor area and ancillary staff facilities over 7-storeys. The office block is designed to maximise future flexibility of lease. At the ground floor level, a generous entrance lobby (and a 4 storey high atrium) allows for a controllable single entrance point. This will provide animation along the Avenue.
