Marine House, a part of the Clanwilliam Court complex in Dublin 2 has recently received a grant of permission from An Bord Pleanála following approval from Dublin City Council at the beginning of the year. The project comprises a radical refurbishment and extension of an existing 1970's office building, improving its environmental performance, increasing its floor area significantly and providing a new highly glazed façade on this prominent site adjacent to the Grand Canal.
A decision to Grant Permission for a major refurbishment and extension of Marine House, Dublin 2 on behalf of our clients, Hibernia REIT plc from Dublin City Council.
Marine House occupies a central position in the Clanwilliam Court office complex which stretches from Lower Grand Canal Street to the north east to Lower Mount Street to the south west. This is a highly prominent location with a significant south east facing address to the important linear amenity space of the Grand Canal.
The scheme proposal is to refurbish and extend Marine House in order to significantly enhance its architectural treatment and the workplace environment that it offers. To that end it is proposed to strip it back to its essential structure of concrete columns, beams and slabs and to re imagine it from that starting point. This innovative approach to design and sustainability offers many environmental and low energy benefits over an approach of wholesale demolition and reconstruction.
Full Planning Permission has just been granted by Dublin City Council for our scheme of four office buildings at City Block 9 North Wall Quay Dublin 1. This 36000sqm development of Grade A office space is another major component in the ongoing rejuvenation of the North Docks area of the city and compliments our high rise EXO project to the east of the 3 Arena. The scheme also extends the public realm in the form of a new linear courtyard and a network of pedestrian streets through the city block.
