Plans Granted for €62M Office Development in Sandyford

In recent years, the Sandyford area has attracted a large number of multinationals, including Microsoft, Vodafone and Salesforce. The pull of the area has a lot to do with the strong transport links connecting it via Luas to the City centre, Aircoach directly to Dublin airport, M50 just minutes away and a range of bus routes in the immediate vicinity and on the nearby N11 Quality Bus Corridor. So, it’s not surprising that developers are paying more attention to the potential that this side of the city offers. In the last week, planning has been granted for yet another office development in the area. The Leopardstown West campus-style development will include three separate buildings extending to 36,603sq m (394,000sq ft) and is expected to attract an equally impressive class of tenant. #Team3DDB created multiple VVMs and CGIs all of which were used to secure planning.

So, what’s this project all about:
