Dublin Airport Central, a new business park being built at the heart of the Dublin Airport campus in Ireland, has landed a first tenant for its two new Grade A office blocks.
US food giant Kellogg is to be the anchor tenant at Three Dublin Airport Central, a six-floor block located close to Terminal 2. Kellogg will take 3,600m² (39,000ft²) in the 8,500m² (91,000ft²) building and will move its Dublin-based European and Irish offices, which employ over 220 people, to the new development.
Construction is well underway on the first two buildings, which will deliver 20,000m² (215,000ft²) of office space by the third quarter of 2019. A landscaped 1.25-acre urban realm and city gardens are also under construction. This is the first phase of the Dublin Airport Central development, which could ultimately encompass up to 70 acres when fully complete.
Dalton Philips, chief executive of DAA, the airport operator, said, “We can’t wait to welcome Kellogg and its employees to their new home at Dublin Airport Central, and we’re sure that it will be the first of many firms that will be attracted to Dublin Airport by the development. Ireland is well recognized as a world-class location for business and Dublin Airport Central can accommodate the requirements of both major multi-nationals such as Kellogg and Irish firms seeking a modern, flexible location with unmatched connectivity.”
Dave Lawlor, president, Kellogg Europe, said, “We looked at several other potential office locations, both in Dublin city center and suburban locations, and Dublin Airport Central best suited our needs and those of our employees. Dublin Airport Central offers a world-class office environment in a dynamic, incredibly well-connected location that enables us to stay within the Fingal region, where we have been based for more than a decade. This new office environment will create a vibrant atmosphere for our teams in Dublin, enabling us to work in a more creative and connected way to execute our growth strategy across Europe. We’re hugely excited to be the first tenant for Three Dublin Airport Central, and are planning to move to our new home in the third quarter of 2019.”
The Dublin Airport campus is home to more than 200 businesses which together employ more than 19,000 employees. It has more than 30 restaurants and cafés, an extensive choice of retail outlets and facilities including a gym and a swimming pool.
