A landmark mixed-use office campus in the heart of Dublin's historic North Docks has reached a key construction milestone.

The office quarter at Coopers Chase has been officially topped out, with Building 1 due to reach practical completion in May and Building 2 in November.

When completed later this year, the campus will provide over 1m sq ft of mixed-use space including 471 apartments, offices, retail, and cultural space anchored by one acre of public realm.

Designed by leading architects Henry J Lyons and constructed by Sisk, Coopers Cross will set a new standard in Dublin, blending technology and architectural excellence to deliver workspaces that are future ready. Totalling 381,000 sq ft of Grade-A space the two office buildings at Coopers Cross are designed for maximum flexibility with uninterrupted spans and full perimeter glazing across floorplates ranging from 9,800 sq ft to some of the largest in Dublin at 46,800 sq ft. AI driven technology uses an advanced network of sensors to optimize building performance, significantly reducing carbon and lowering operating costs. Earlier this year Coopers Cross was the first commercial development in Ireland to achieve a Platinum SmartScore certification, which is only awarded to schemes within exceptional Intelligent building credentials.
