|Address:||47-49 St Stephens Green, Dublin 2,|
Planning permission has been granted to redevelop a warehouse in Dublin docklands originally owned by U2. It will become an office block.
The listed building at 30-32 Sir John Rogerson’s Quay was originally known as the Tropical Fruit Warehouse and prior to it being put on sale in May 2016 was used as offices by U2’s Principle Management Ltd. It also handled all European fan mail for the band.
Property fund Iput, which has a €2.3 billion portfolio of commercial real estate focusing on Dublin city centre, acquired the property in late 2016 for just over €20 million. The building, originally used for the importation of tropical fruit into Ireland, sits on the waterfront facing Samuel Beckett bridge.
The new development has been designed by Henry J Lyons Architects. And it will have more than 70,000sq ft of river-front offices and a six-storey office block at the rear overlooking an existing public square.
