CBRE Seeking Specialist Retailers for The Times Building
Dublin, September 2015 – This week sees the launch of The Times Building on D’Olier and Fleet Street by CBRE. The building is the former home of The Irish Times newspaper, a restored 19th century landmark building.
D’Olier Street, named after Jeremiah D'Olier (1745-1817) who was city Sheriff in 1788 and a Wide Streets Commissioner, was one of the last major interventions in the Dublin city plan to be executed by the Wide Streets Commissioners. The Irish Times newspaper resided in this area since 1895 until its subsequent relocation to its new headquarters at Tara street some 200 meters away in late 2004.
The naming of the development as The Times Building continues the location’s association with one of Ireland’s best known broadsheets. Its refurbishment combined with the modern additions along Fleet Street mark a new lease of life that with specialist retailers will allow this landmark building to become a hub for new innovative and dynamic retailers.
The historic buildings of 8 – 16 D’Olier Street have been restored and extended into third generation office accommodation, which is occupied by the Irish Aviation Authority, with attractive retail units at ground floor. The ground floor retail units consist of a combination of the historic Georgian structures with new build accommodation to their rear. The retail units also benefit from attractive neo Georgian facades in keeping with the areas historical fabric.
Retail space will be available from approx. 103 sq. m. to 421 sq. m. These units are well serviced by nearby Trinity College, bustling Temple Bar and the strong links between Grafton Street and Henry Street that draw shoppers back and forth to both sides of the Liffey.
The Times Building gives an excellent opportunity for specialist retailers to design creative spaces in a unique and prominent city centre location under competitive and flexible terms. The new exciting retail mix will revitalise D’Olier Street and reaffirm its primary role as an important connection between the north side and south side of the city
