The scheme will also include a ground-floor cafe, private rooftop terraces, 170 bike spaces and 48 car-parking spaces.

While the new building derives its name from the site’s origin as the St Michael Le Pole church, the scheme’s immediate surrounds remain steeped in history thanks to the commanding presence of neighbouring Dublin Castle and the nearby St Patrick’s Cathedral.

Willie Dowling of CBRE’s office division says: “The combination of cutting-edge design, focus on sustainability, established developer and historic city centre location should appeal to a variety of potential occupiers, but in particular government offices, tech sector and professional firms.”

One Le Pole Square is being offered to the market as a single headquarter premises or alternatively as a multi-letting with floors from 2,000sq m (21,528sq ft).
