Hibernia REIT unveils plans for Windmill Lane studio site
Property investor Hibernia REIT has unveiled its plans for the iconic Windmill Lane site - once home to a recording studio used by the likes of U2 and New Order.
The company aims to develop over 120,000 sq. ft. of offices, around 7,000 sq. ft. of retail, and 15 residential units at the site.
The company has formed a joint venture with an affiliate of American investment firm Starwood Capital to develop the project.
The Windmill Lane studio has now been demolished, but the company has retained a 20 metre stretch of the graffiti wall on the front of the studio and is working with two museums who are interested in using the wall in their displays.
"We are making good progress delivering on our vision to create an exciting new urban quarter that will extend the vibrant hub that is Dublin’s South Docks down to the Liffey," a Hibernia spokesman said.
