PIC: The First New Building To Be Constructed In The IFSC Since 2003 Is Nearing Completion


The first new building to be constructed in Dublin’s IFSC (Irish Financial Services Centre) since 2003 is nearing completion, with a confirmed completion date of September 28. 

‘The Exchange’ building was revealed this week and The Cosgrave Property Group, in partnership with IPUT plc.

The first tenant to arrive at the 105,000 sq. ft. building will be the Food Safety Authority of Ireland, who will occupy 19,000 sq. ft. across the first floor. 

A further 8,000 sq. ft. is reserved on the ground floor. Savills is continuing to market the remaining 78,000 sq. ft. of space and have reported interest from a number of parties.


The Exchange will provide 105,000 sq ft (9,750 sq m) of office space over six floors and is being developed by the Cosgrave Property Group with funding provided by IPUT plc and John Sisk & Sons as the main contractor.

Space is available to let on a floor by floor basis and, upon completion, the building will accommodate 1,200 people when complete.

Designed by KMD Architects, The Exchange is a 6-storey over basement building with an imposing projected glass and granite façade, full floor-to-ceiling glazing and a stunning full height central atrium pouring natural light to each of its six floors.

Its upper floors will provide extensive views across the IFSC and the wider Dublin skyline. Floor plates of 19,000 sq ft have been designed for maximum efficiency and flexibility, creating a workspace with A3 energy efficiency which can adjust and split efficiently from 4,415sqft responding to the changing needs of business.

Just five minutes’ walk from Connolly Station, it’s surrounded by many of the world’s leading financial services brands within the IFSC including KPMG, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, SIG and Zurich, PwC, Morgan Stanley, and BNY Mellon.

LUAS, train, DART, bus and bike stations are all within a few minutes’ walk with Dublin Airport a mere 25 minutes by road via the Dublin Port Tunnel.
