Central Bank’s new €140m headquarters Project

The Central Bank is expected to submit a planning application for its new headquarters which will be built on the Dublin Docklands site once earmarked as a head office for the former Anglo Irish Bank, which will cost an estimated €140 million, reports the Irish Times.

The application seeks approval for an eight-storey office block. The 30,000 sq.m building can house approximately 1,400 staff and will contain a range of open floor office areas and meeting rooms. Its energy rating of A2 will make it one of the most power-efficient buildings in the country.

If it gets the go-ahead, the building will create 350 jobs during the construction phase until its target completion date in 2016.
