The new 165,000 square foot building, located at Sir John Rogerson's Quay close to the East Link bridge, will house more than 1,100 State Street employees across its global services and alternative investment solutions businesses.

It has a rain-water harvesting system, high-performance glazing to reduce air-conditioning needs and eliminate office "glare", and air-handling units which provide heat-recovery efficiencies.

Jay Hooley, who became State Street's chief executive yesterday, presided over the opening events in Dublin.

"The opening of this new building is an example of our expanding footprint in Europe and our strong commitment to Ireland," said Boston-born Mr Hooley.

"We are continually broadening our service offerings and developing solutions that are uniquely suited to the needs of our clients."

State Street first set up operations here in 1996 and now has offices in Carrickmines, Drogheda, Dublin, Kilkenny, and Naas, with more than 2,000 local employees.
