In a €40m deal, the Digital Hub Development Agency (DHDA) has secured new enterprise office space and a student accommodation development for The Liberties area in Dublin City.
The project is expected to create up to 300 jobs in construction in the short-term, and will result in the creation of an additional 10,650 square feet of enterprise office space at the Digital Hub, as well as a housing development for 470 students on Bonham Street in Dublin 8.
Knightsbridge Student Housing Ltd. will invest substantially in this development, which will see the development of both the Grainstore building and high quality student accommodation.
“Currently, the Digital Hub campus has high occupancy, so it is great that new office space will be available soon to cater for the ongoing demand we experience for space from growing digital enterprises,”
“The refurbishment will preserve the Grainstore building into the future and will provide digital companies with the opportunity to locate their office space in a unique setting. We look forward to welcoming more companies into our vibrant cluster of over 70 enterprises.”
Edel Flynn, Digital Hub CEO
Currently 900 people are employed at the Digital Hub and more than 170 scaling digital companies have been based there since it first opened. More than 2,000 jobs have been created in the Irish economy by the various companies.
