EastPoint is located on what was intended to be a location for a new City Airport in Dublin, similar to London City Airport. This plan ultimately proved impractical and the site was acquired by Earlsfort Centre Developments.
Earlsfort engaged Scott Tallon Walker to masterplan the Park and design the buildings. The design concept Scott Tallon Walker envisaged for Eastpoint’s 37 buildings was one of state of the art cost effective, flexible and well serviced buildings. Each building is different in form yet all use the same pallet of materials,Irish limestone,glass and aluminium set in beautiful landscaped surroundings alongside the Tolka Estuary and Dublin Bay.
It became necessary, because of the route of the Dublin Port Tunnel, to construct a new bridge and causeway from Alfie Byrne Road to access the Park.
The success of the initial phase of EastPoint led to Earlsfort and Dublin Port Company entering a joint venture to develop a further phase. This brought the size of the Park to Circa 40 acres with Circa 140,000 square meters (1.5m square feet) of mainly offices in 37 buildings. This also provided a further entrance to the Park from Bond Road thus enhancing access from the South City.
Today, EastPoint continues to evolve to meet the needs of its many and varied clients and Earlsfort are committed to continuing this process into the future.
