A mixed-use capacity study has been carried out by O'Mahony Pike Architects, illustrating three potential development strategies.
Merrion House is a three-storey detached office building extending to approximately 8,035.35 sq.m (86,493 sq.ft). Jacobs Engineering currently occupy 3,809.03 sq.m (40,100 sq.ft) NIA incorporating part of the ground and the entire second floor. The remaining floors are vacant presenting an opportunity for refurbishment and re-letting. Jacobs Engineering pay an annual rent of €1,004,864 and are due to vacate in January 2024. The office space occupied by Jacobs is finished to a modern specification including air conditioning, raised access floors, underfloor trunking and suspended ceilings. The building benefits from 2 passenger lifts.
Former Swift Call Centre
We understand the building to be uninhabitable and is therefore considered as develop-able area within the 2.92 acre site.
A very generous 201 surface car parking spaces are provided with this opportunity. A total of 105 car parking spaces are included in the lease to Jacobs.
St Vincents Hospital are currently renting 51 car parking spaces on a licence agreement at €76,500 per annum. To the south of the surface car park there is a narrow strip of undeveloped land which is zoned for open space. Secure bicycle parking spaces are also available for office tenants. A copy of the measurement survey is available in the data room.
OMahony Pike Architects have devised three distinct feasibility scenarios that emphasise the flexibility of the site. These include two scenarios that give consideration to retaining the existing
structure of Merrion House and delivering a comprehensive redevelopment of the remainder of the site and a third scenario that considers the full redevelopment of the site.
