Located in Dublin’s SOBO District, the development at 1WML is comprised of a new 6 storey over basement office building with a floor space of 16,500 m² and a 4 storey residential building with retail space at ground floor. The Office entrance is located off Windmill Lane and is visible from Sir John Rogerson Quay.

A 19th Century grain store, no 19 Creighton Street has been retained on the site and creates a dramatic backdrop and entrance feature to the main office foyer, which is a 650 m² double height space that can be sub-divided into a large town hall space for “All Hands” events and a separate foyer space.

The project is constructed to LEED Gold standard and provides unrivalled commercial office space in Dublin’s Docklands.
