The development of Capital Dock in Dublin’s South Docklands – one of the largest mixed-use developments ever created in Ireland – is now complete. The city campus development spans 4.8 acres and features over 690,000 square feet of new mixed-use space, including offices, retail and multi-family units. The Kennedy Wilson development also features more than 1.5 acres of public park space.
About 1,300 construction workers were based onsite during the building of the project, with the development expected to support hundreds of permanent jobs when fully complete. Over 200,000 tons of concrete, 15,000 tons of steel and 7,500 panes of glass were used during construction of the project. US bank JP Morgan and jobs website Indeed have already committed to occupy all of the available office space, and are preparing their new offices for occupancy in 2019.
From January 2019, the 190 multi-family units will be available to rent, with resident amenities including a dedicated on-site concierge, resident lounges, cinema, professional gym, business suites and a chef’s kitchen. “We are so proud of what the team has accomplished here in Dublin at Capital Dock with what’s been our largest scale development to date, and to deliver high-quality residences within such a vibrant market,” commented William McMorrow, chairman and CEO of Kennedy Wilson.
“When we began conceptualising Capital Dock years ago, we envisioned creating a new heart for the Docklands that brought people together in modern work spaces and beautiful outdoor areas, while raising the bar for residential rentals,” he said. “To see the area come to life and our vision come to fruition is incredibly satisfying and reinforces the exciting future of the Docklands and the greater Dublin market,” Mr McMorrow added.
