At 20 Kildare Street, we saw an opportunity to deliver a 65,000 square-foot landmark office development located within the heart of the city's central business district, close to St Stephen's Green and Grafton Street.

After assembling a portfolio of existing properties, including four Georgian townhomes dating back to the 1750's, Kennedy Wilson secured new entitlements for the project to incorporate the rich heritage of the Georgian buildings with the construction of a modern, seven-story Grade A office building tucked behind. This included restoring the historic facades, and significantly refurbishing the internal fabric of each of the Georgian buildings, revealing the original brickwork and repairing the double hung window sashes and timber entrance doors. 

The new buidling is seamlessly connected by a triple-height 1,500 square-foot glazed atrium, which tenants can use as a business lounge to host events and ad hoc meetings. Tenants futher benefit from touchless technology to access and navigate through the office, basement-level car and bike parking, electric vehicle chargers and shower and locker facilities. The development was recognized by the Irish Construction Industry Awards as the "Conservation Project of the Year" and the "Construction Project of the Year" in 2022, and recognized with the "Build Heritage & Conservation Award" at the 2023 KPMG Irish Independent Property Industry Excellence Awards.

The building also boasts impressive ESG credentials. A fully electric building, the first of its kind in Ireland, 20 Kildare Street is certified LEED Gold, WELL Gold, anad has a WiredScore Platinum rating. Additionally, the efficient building management system enables tenants to access their individual consumption data and can actively engage in the planned quarterly meetings to collaborate with the building management team on energy, water, and waste reduction strategies.
