It looks like LinkedIn is going to massively increase its workforce in Dublin.

The professional networking site has agreed to take over three new office blocks once they're built.

The buildings, which are beside its current headquarters at Wilton Park, are due to open by 2023.

The development will total 600,000 sq. ft. of office, retail & restaurant space, centred around a park.

Construction has commenced on the first building, which was fully pre-let to LinkedIn in 2018.

The company has also now agreed to pre-let three additional inter-connecting buildings.

LinkedIn has signed a 25 year lease, with a guarantee it will stay for 12.

Niall Gaffney from IPUT, which is developing the site, said he is "proud to partner with LinkedIn".

He said the company "shares our ambition to sustainably develop a new destination in Dublin's central business district".

Senator Neale Richmond is happy to see LinkedIn has committed to lease the buildings for 25 years.

"A lot of people worry when you have these big job announcements that they could be short-term, but by committing to a 25 year lease we know this is a long-term investment for Dublin", he said.

Despite committing to leasing the huge new campus, LinkedIn has not yet made any comment on how many jobs it will be creating.
