Port Tunnel Business Park
Case Study – Industrial / Office - Port Tunnel Business Park
Port Tunnel Business Park is a redevelopment of the former Hitachi Manufacturing facility in Clonshaugh Dublin 17. Following the successful removal of IDA restrictions on users the building was extensively redeveloped in 2005 and now comprises an enterprise and office business park of 45 enterprise units and 21 office units together with a document storage facility. It is located adjacent to the entrance to the Dublin Port Tunnel, close to the M1/M50 otorway junction in Dublin 17. Uses within the park include manufacturing, service providers, medical, distribution, storage and office.
