The Irish Government agency responsible for attracting foreign direct investment to Ireland, IDA Ireland, has today confirmed it has selected Three Park Place on Upper Hatch Street in Dublin 2 as its preferred option for its new Global Headquarters.
IDA Ireland plans to occupy the upper floors of the facility along with other agencies - Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and the Marine Institute. The proposed re-location of the Agency’s Global Headquarters is dependent upon the satisfactory completion of legal and technical due diligence and receiving the necessary approvals as provided for in the Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies.
Speaking yesterday, IDA Ireland CEO, Martin Shanahan commented, "The move is necessary as the lease on our current location in Wilton Park House, Dublin 2, will expire in 2019 – IDA Ireland has been located here since 1985. The new location at Three Park Place will provide IDA Ireland with an excellent location from which to market to global investors and will enable us to bring the organisation through the next phase of growth and pursue its vision of being the best and most successful Investment Promotion Agency in the world."
