US State Street agreed terms for the second-biggest office letting in Ireland back in 2007and this is it. The global fund management firm occupies the 170,000 sq ft at the site, which was developed by X billionaire developer Liam Carroll here in the Sir John Rogerson’s Quay which is in the south docklands area, Dublin 2.
State Street is using this office as its HQ . Savills HOK advised the financial services company, while CB Richard Ellis acted for Liam Carroll.
Carroll’s company, Dunloe Ewart,is the company uses by Carroll and we the taxpayers of Ireland are now the landlords of these guys. What brought my attention to this company is the sheer amount of Cameras on the building there is in all 17 and I can’t help wonder what it is that these guys want to protect so much in there? No other building along Sir John Rogerson’s Quay has as many cameras, most have a camera at the front door as you go into the buildings but this building is like Fort Knox, it has cameras everywhere! Are these Boys managing Colonel Gaddafi’s hidden Billions??
