Dublin Chamber has welcomed Google's purchase of the Boland's Quay development in Dublin's Docklands.

The Chamber described the investment as a big vote of confidence in Dublin's credentials as a place in which to do business.

According to Dublin Chamber CEO Mary Rose Burke: "This is a hugely exciting move for Dublin and a real statement of intent by Google regarding its long-term commitment to the city. Google has continually increased its presence in Ireland since it arrived in Dublin 15 years ago. The investment in Boland's Quay sends a message to the world about Dublin's credentials as a business location. This is particulalry significant given the eyes of many other potential investors are currently on Dublin due to Brexit. Google is already a big employer in Dublin and we look forward to seeing the company expand its presence here further over the coming years."

Ms Burke added: "The redevelopment of Boland's Mill is a significant one for the Dockland's area and for the city as a whole. It's fantastic to see such an iconic building, which has played a big part in Dublin's commercial history, being reimagined for a new generation and for a new era. The plans for the site are stunning and the redevelopment is very sensitive to the building's heritage. The end product will deliver exactly the mix that Dublin requires in the form of office space, residential units, cafes and restaurants and also high quality public realm."
