Hi-tech office spaces available in Shannon Free Zone digital hub

Just launched to-let in the market is Universal House, in the heart of the Shannon Free Zone (SFZ) in Co Clare. This is part of a wider €21 million project aimed at making the Shannon Free Zone one of the biggest digital hubs in Ireland.

Shannon Commercial Properties has completed a major refurbishment of the property which has just been released on the letting market with joint agents GVA Donal O Buachalla. The quoted rent for the building is €14 per sq ft.

Ray O’Driscoll of Shannon Commercial Properties says: “We are delighted to bring Universal House to the market. This property is the first initiative completed under our five-year programme to deliver a new and improved stock of advanced manufacturing, warehousing, and office space solutions at Shannon Free Zone.”

The property enjoys a high profile in the heart of the SFZ. This building is a four storey, 1,129 sq m (12,151 sq ft), block of contemporary office space, finished to a high modern specification.

Included are newly-carpeted, raised access floors with high end Cat 6 data cabling and suspended ceilings with recessed LED light fittings.

It has also been provided with a new reception area to enhance access to the rest of the building.

Floor plates range from 288 sq m (3,099 sq ft) to 477 sq m (5,136 sq ft) and the agents say that flexible lease terms can be negotiated.

The agents describe this as ‘an ideal opportunity for a company to acquire office accommodation with generous car-parking in the SFZ’. Alternatively the building may also suit smaller companies and professional practices seeking fully-fitted offices on competitive and flexible lease terms.

Shannon Free Zone is currently home to more than 150 companies including among them EI Electronics, EMC, Intel, Lufthansa Technik, GE Sensing, Pepper Asset Servicing, and GECAS.
