GOOGLE has sealed its latest move to increase its massive footprint in the Dublin Docklands with completion of a deal to acquire two office buildings from Kennedy Wilson.

Google has acquired sole control of South Bank House and The Warehouse, beside Google's European HQ on Barrow Street.

Both buildings are currently leased to law firm Mason Hayes and Curran.

It comes just six months after Google’s €300m purchase of the neighbouring Bolands Quay scheme – a massive development site.

South Bank House was completed in 2006 and provides over 62,000 sq ft of Grade A offices. The Warehouse sits on the waterfront to the rear of South Bank House and comprises a 19th century, three-story warehouse building of over 19,500 sq ft that was extensively refurbished to provide modern office space.
