More than 26,000 square metres of office space is provided for in the proposed development by Mr Barrett’s company, Edward Capital, at a site overlooking the tidal docks.
The former oil storage facility was cleared to facilitate the first Volvo Ocean Race stopover in Galway.
Mr Barrett’s plan is regarded as one of the largest commercial developments in the city in several decades, and adjoins the 8.2 acre site around Ceannt Station which CIE is seeking a partner to develop.
The four blocks range in size from 4,820 to 11,845 square metres, and could accommodate up to 2,600 employees, according to Edward Capital. Building may generate over 500 construction jobs.
Mr Barrett’s company says that a revision of plans includes a dedicated arts/cultural facility, along with public squares and plazas.
