Thanks to a thriving start-up culture and growing demand from established corporates, flexible workspace is a strong emerging sector in the Dublin office market.
Local providers such as Glandore and Iconic Offices have been more than happy to service demand to date. And now, US giant WeWork is looking to grab a slice of the action following several years spent scoping out the opportunity. The company has recently taken 50,000 sq ft at the former Ulster Bank’s Dublin headquarters at 1 George’s Quay, now known as 1GQ, and another 55,000 sq ft at the McGarrell Reilly-developed Iveagh Court on Harcourt Road.
“Dublin is an obvious choice for us for so many reasons,” explains WeWork’s UK and Ireland general manager Leni Zneimer. “It is very well connected with Dublin Airport, as well as the tram system and cycle share schemes, and it’s a centre for innovation, media, business and technology, with thousands of start-ups, hundreds of global tech companies and many millions of euros being raised in recent years.”
So who’s doing what in order to meet demand?
