All I know is that it was burnt out about 3 years ago and has been left to acrue graffiti ever since. Did you by any chance see the state of the old Esso headquarters aswell? It is amazing to see how quickly a building can go in to such a ruinous state!

It was one of the first Suburban Offices. Not too sure where they moved to but there was planning permission submitted for the site last year. As far as I remember it was rejected.

Paul, I saw in the Irish Times today that the site of the old Esso HQ just got the go ahead for the development of a mixed use residential and office scheme.

Totalling 52,711 Square metres of space predominently residential comprising 525 Apartments, an 86 bed nursing home and only 4154 square metres of offices and a creche and two shops.


The scheme is different from the original that was refused permission as it is lower and "As a result is a superior scheme" according to the planners.

One of the conditions was that access was to be provided from the secondary Brewery Rd and not onto the Stillorgan Road.

The Capital contribution levied was €9m
