This includes the basement area of 1986 sq.m. The proposed building will be constructed adjoining an existing retail / office building on at One Clarendon Row. The One Clarendon Row building was constructed with ‘soft spots’ to allow for the integration of the proposed new building.

The development includes a two-storey basement, formed with perimeter secant piles tied through a capping beam into reinforced concrete (RC) basement liner walls.
The site area is 1171.7sqm (with an additional 40.3 sqm of ‘other’ lands along the frontage) and the current site is 100 percent hardstanding. The site is bounded by Chatham Street to the north, commercial buildings to the east and south and Clarendon Row to the west.

The asset, located adjacent to Grafton Street and St Stephen’s Green, comprises retail units 33,500 square feet in size – currently occupied by Zara, H&M and Warehouse.
