The co-working provider, tcube, has signed a long-term lease for a property situated at 1 O’Connell Street in the city’s centre. As part of the agreement, the company will provide another 60 coworking desks for remote workers based in Dublin.
History abounds at 1 O’Connell Street. The building was originally located at the corner of O’Connell Street and Eden Quay but was destroyed during the 1916 Rising, along with many other buildings in the area.
Most Dubliners remember the building as the headquarters of the Irish Nationwide Building Society, with its green letters visible from O’Connell Bridge, following a major reconstruction in 1922 for jewellers, silversmiths, and watchmakers Hopkins & Hopkins.
tcube offers coworking, event and meeting space, as well as serviced office solutions since 2013. According to the company, the COVID-19 pandemic led to what is regarded as the world’s largest experiment in remote working. tcube’s office space on Westmoreland Street is now back at 99% capacity, paving the way for it to open a new location in Dublin city centre.
“Since COVID-19 vaccinations began earlier this year and fed up working from home, we have experienced a surge of new and existing members coming back into tcube Westmoreland Street. Although the pandemic had hit us hard, we were always convinced that our city-centre location and low-cost, no-frills model would see apartment dwellers, desperate to separate their work and home lives, seeking alternative ways to work for their employers remotely,” says Barry Alistair, director of tcube coworking.
From Nr 1 O’Connell Street, you have a panoramic view that stretches to Trinity College, Grafton Street, and beyond to the Dublin Mountains. Natural light floods the building from the south, making the space bright and productive.
