An Post is ‘closing in on a deal to relocate’ its headquarters from the GPO to the Exo Building at Point Square in the Dublin docklands.
Via Irish Times:
The company is understood to have entered into exclusive negotiations to rent at least 120,000sq ft at the property from its owners, a European fund advised by Tristan Capital Partners and local partners SW3 Capital. The Exo, which is under construction, will comprise 169,150sq ft of Grade A office space upon completion later this year.
….While An Post’s GPO headquarter operations now look set to be relocated to the Exo Building, its public post office and the GPO Witness History Museum will continue in their current location…
