The redevelopment of 2 Grand Parade for Hines, will consist of approx. 16,000m2 (GIA) of Grade A commercial office space which includes the renovation of the existing listed building, originally known as the O’Carrolls Building which faces onto the Grand Canal. The existing building is being extended southwards with a further ~10,000m2 of commercial office space including 7 levels glazed and naturally ventilated atrium.
The original brief for this development was to achieve LEED Gold accreditation. However, Ethos Sustainability worked with Hines to help identify how Platinum could be achieved which is now the new target for this project.
