The Garden’s International – Limerick’s €23m Office Development

The 0.6 acre Gardens International Office is a striking example of the new standard of office space that is set to bring over 750 jobs to Henry Street, Limerick City.

Emerging with national architectural awards, the commercial development features 112,000 sq. ft of LEED Gold Grade A office accommodation.

Nordic Aviation Capital, a major aircraft leasing company has recently taken up residence in Limerick’s newly refurbished Gardens International. Nordic, which has more than 500 aircraft in its portfolio, generated $98.1m (€88.5m) in the first half of its financial year which is close to twice the amount it generated in the first half of its previous financial year.

Gardens International takes its name from the once-famous Hanging Gardens, the brainchild of Limerick merchant William Roche. Two centuries ago, the Gardens were home to exotic fruits and vegetables on terraces over vaulted storehouses.

CGI consultants, 3D Design Bureau liaised with the development team to construct a series of architectural visualisation images. 3D Design Bureau produced both architectural and interior CGIs which were used for marketing and design purposes.
