East Point is recognised as Ireland’s most successful business park and is home to a vibrant mix of indigenous, multinational and ‘Fortune 500’ companies.

Realising the enormous potential of the location just minutes from Dublin’s growing International Financial Services Centre, our client engaged Scott Tallon Walker to masterplan the 13.75 hectare site and the subsequent phased delivery of all 34 buildings.

The land was originally reclaimed from the estuary for port and industrial uses, and required remediation of landfill gas and other environmental issues before construction could commence.

 

The design concept for East Point is one of cost effective, flexible and well serviced buildings set within mature landscaping which has transformed the once bleak site into a green oasis.

Each building is different in form yet all share a common identity through use of a limited palette of materials - Irish limestone, glass and aluminium – and precisely engineered curtain walling and brise-soleil systems.

The campus setting, on-site telecom exchange and IT infrastructure, restaurant and sports facilities all combine to provide occupants with an environment that promotes synergy, interaction and growth.

 

With over 130,000sqm of office space, the plot ratio for the site is almost 1:1 – up to twice as dense as many suburban office parks. The spacious campus feel is maintained by excellent landscaping and careful consideration of carparking, including multi-storey provision.

The quality and enduring appeal of the scheme has been internationally recognised with the British Council for Offices twice using the park as a venue for its Annual Conferences. More importantly, its success is evidenced by high tenant demand and permanently low vacancy rates, while we are proud to maintain a continuing involvement with repeat fitout commissions from new and existing tenants.
