Work on the city's tallest office building in the Docklands is a step closer.
A tender is underway to appoint a building contractor to the 73 metre project at the Point Square.
350 jobs will be created during the construction phase of the 170,000 square foot office block which is likely to cost €70 million and take 2 years to complete.
Once finished, the EXO will be able accommodate up to 2,000 office workers.
Savills and CBRE are looking for companies interested in letting office space in the state of the art building.Receiver Stephen Tennant of Grant Thornton said: "We are delighted to get this project off the ground and look forward to seeing it through to completion. Our first priority is to secure a main building contractor who can deliver a quality scheme on-time and on-budget."
Roland O'Connell of Savills said: "The EXO will provide the most spectacular workspace in the city. Its accessibility is unrivalled with the Luas stopping outside and the Port Tunnel providing quick access to the M50 and a 15 minute trip to Dublin Airport - surely one of the quickest airport links in the world.''
Mark Smyth of CBRE commented: "Since planning approval was granted for the development, we have had numerous enquiries from both local and international office occupiers - all interested in being part of an area of Dublin that has been completely rejuvenated."
