The project is funded by Nama and is being constructed under a single phased development programme.
Bolands Quay will provide three new landmark buildings comprising of office, residential, retail and cultural space.
The development will also involve the restoration of a number of protected mill buildings and the creation of a new civic plaza looking onto the waterfront at Grand Canal Dock.
