Historic Aldborough House: €30m Office Redevelopment

One of Dublin’s greatest Georgian mansions, Aldborough House is about to undergo a major redevelopment to create a model office headquarters complex.

Aldborough House on Portland Row in Dublin’s City Centre has been derelict for over 20 years and will now undergo a major €30 million office development which was approved by An Bord Pleanála earlier last year.

Combining both old and new, the 18th century centre piece will be fully restored as a protected structure along with the south pavilion wing and reconstruction of the long demolished northern chapel pavilion, together with linking colonnaded screen wall.

This will open the fully restored entrance front and principal elevation of the building to the street as originally intended.

When completed, Aldborough House will provide over 11,000sq m of Grade A office accommodation spanning over 5-storey wings.

Work has not yet commenced on the office development as owners, Reliance Investments, say that an anchor tenant is required for the Georgian mansion before construction can proceed.

CGI consultants, 3D Design Bureau liaised with Howley Hayes Architect to construct a series of architectural visualisation renders. 3D Design Bureau produced verified view montages and architectural CGIs which were used for both planning and marketing purposes.
