Iconic, historic building on Dublin’s O’Connell Street to provide 60 new co-working places for Dublin remote workers.
Privately owned co-working provider Tcube has secured a long-term lease at No 1 O’Connell Street in Dublin city centre.
The agreement will see the company providing a further 60 new coworking desks for Dublin based remote workers.
“Although the pandemic had hit us hard, we were always convinced that our city centre location and low-cost, no-frills model would see apartment dwellers, desperate to separate their work and home lives, seeking alternative ways to work for their employers remotely”
The prestigious building at No 1 O’Connell Street is rich with history. Occupying a prominent site at the corner of O’Connell Street and Eden Quay, the original structure, like many of the buildings in this area, was destroyed during the 1916 Rising.
The current building was rebuilt in 1922 for jewellers, silversmiths and watchmakers, Hopkins & Hopkins, however, most Dubliners will remember it as the flagship premises for the Irish Nationwide Building Society, with its enormous green lettering visible from O’Connell Bridge.
Hosting the new normal
Tcube has been a leading provider of coworking, event and meeting space, and serviced office solutions since 2013.
The company’s CEO Barry Alastair explained that the Covid-19 pandemic brought about the world’s biggest experiment for digital workers working from home, concluding with an evolving model of remote working.
Tcube says it’s Westmoreland Street office space is back to 99pc capacity, and has paved the way for the company to open a new venue in Dublin city centre.
“Since Covid-19 vaccinations began earlier this year and fed up working from home, we have experienced a surge of new and existing members coming back into Tcube Westmoreland Street.
“Although the pandemic had hit us hard, we were always convinced that our city centre location and low-cost, no-frills model would see apartment dwellers, desperate to separate their work and home lives, seeking alternative ways to work for their employers remotely.”
The new Tcub at No 1 O’Connell Street will open in late November.
