LIMERICK’s new Gardens International office development is set to be fully let by next year, the company behind the project has predicted this Tuesday morning.

At a breakfast event in the Savoy Hotel, staff at Limerick Twenty Thirty, as well as the letting agents, Cushman and Wakefield Sherry Fitzgerald launched a new web site and brochure for the €18m project.

Some 750 jobs are on the cards at Gardens International, which includes significant restoration of what remains of the former Hanging Gardens and General Post Office sites in Henry Street.

Gardens International is the first part of the €500m Limerick Twenty Thirty programme, which will also see development at the old Cleeves toffee factory and Project Opera in Patrick Street.

Mayor Stephen Keary said: “This project is symbolic of a dynamic and vibrant emerging Limerick, a city both high on ambition and delivery.”

David Conway, the chief executive of Limerick Twenty Thirty added: “We are getting to a very exciting period for our wider Twenty Thirty project, with the completion of this project only a few months away, and then the first batch of employees moving to the development in quarter four of 2018. Considering the company was launched in September 2016, this is rapid progress.”

Gardens International’s new web site can be found at www.gardenslimerick.com.
