Google Launches

We are delighted to promote the launch of on behalf of our client Google Ireland – an exciting new Placemaking concept which aims to bring together independent restaurants, café bars and leisure offerings, a new food marketplace, public realm and cultural spaces.

Cogent Associates are providing Project and Cost Management consultancy services that includes assisting in the development of the Landlord leasing strategy, to facilitate small and emerging traders to occupy the spaces. Congratulations to Cogent’s Cormac O’Neill, Johan Schnitter and David Lyons who have been instrumental in bringing this project to fruition.

The leasing process of the units is now open to applications and interested parties should contact CBRE Retail in Dublin.

Located on the waterfront within the Grand Canal Dock, the site has a rich history and industrial heritage and has been designed with community at its core, offering new public and cultural spaces, accessible during the daytime, evening and weekends. There is a ‘community heart’ throughout the development and in the centre of the space is a Building dedicated to community and cultural permitted use and is available to suitable operators as part of a Landlord Leasing Strategy.

A reimagined public realm, streets, playground and walkways have been designed using Universal Design standards. The various retail units come with cafe, retail, restaurant and leisure permitted uses in addition to a food marketplace use that will be home to multiple traders.

Cogent Associates provided pre-purchase Technical Due Diligence services for the development of Bolands Quay and our teams are currently providing Project Monitoring services of the Developer’s Base Build Works, Project and Cost Management services for the Cat A and B fit out of the towers, including the creation of two link bridges, and for the above Placemaking scheme.
