Hopefully BNY Mellon and the Central Bank can share the building. I know the Central Bank would like a building to themselves but if they’re retaining their Dame Street block then they probably won’t need all of the erstwhile-planned Anglo HQ. There should be enough room for both of them in the place. It’s good to see this sort of interest expressed in office in Dublin. I feel that the long winter in construction activity in Dublin should come to an end, at least around the Docklands area. Several large office blocks planned for this area have been put on ice due to the downturn (as well as the residential Point Watchtower). Given that Ireland remains an attractive place for international investors like Google, facebook, BNY Mellon, Hedgeserv etc. and that the Docklands is an ideal place for these companies to locate, it makes sense for a healthy pipeline of high-quality office development should be taking place. Moreover, the Watchtower should also be developed to provide accommodation for the staff of these companies – Google has been a godsend for the property owners of Beggar’s Bush since it has provided hundreds of affluent young tenants. The Watchtower could become part of this and provide living space for the people working in the Docklands area.
