THE EXO BUILDING AT THE POINT SQUARE
The name of the area keeps changing … The Point Depot, The Point, The Point Village and now the Point Square.
The Point Depot was constructed in 1878 as a rail terminus for the Midland and Great Western Railway Company, its has been redeveloped a number of times since then.
Harry Crosbie started a major development in the area named the “Point Village” but the project was not completed for various reasons. There is now a wider development known as “Point Square” which is home to the hugely-successful 3 Arena, which hosts more than 100 concerts a year, and the 252-bedroom Gibson Hotel, which is owned by German real estate investor, Deka Immobilien.
The Exo Building on completion, will see the addition of 2,000 workers to the Point Square area.
The Exo Building is a 17-storey office building located at the corner of North Wall Quay and East Wall Road in Dublin 1, Ireland. The building is adjacent to the Point Depot (now the 3Arena) fronting on to the river Liffey and Dublin port. As of 2021, it is the tallest office building in the Republic of Ireland at 73 metres tall. The name Exo is in reference to its exoskeleton which reflects the traditional industrial crane and gantry landscape of the port area.
State owned postal services and delivery company An Post have signed a lease to become the anchor tenant for the building.
