Guinness gets green light to convert brewhouse into modern office space

Real estate developer Ballymore has received planning permission for a new headquarters for Guinness owner Diageo.

Ublin City Council has given the green light to Marbelsand Holding Ltd to convert the Brewhouse 2 building at St James’s Gate Brewery in central Dublin into modern office space.

The building, which was once part of the Guinness brewery, will span almost 13,000 square meters, with Diageo as the anchor tenant.

The Brewhouse planning application is the first phase of a master plan for the broader St James’s Gate site, which includes a mixed-use project that will be integrated into the broader Liberties area. Diageo has commissioned Ballymore to carry out the project.

The mixed-use scheme — currently before council in a separate planning application — includes 336 residential units, a hotel, a 300-seat event space, a food hall and marketplace, commercial space, and more than two acres of landscaped public space on a 12.5-acre site .

The brewery at St James’s Gate is the home of Guinness and has had a long brewing history at its current location since 1759.

The repurposed office building will be seven stories tall, two stories taller than the current Brewhouse building.

The council planner’s report said the proposed development would not affect the convenience of property in the vicinity and is consistent with the city development plan.

Shay Cleary Architects, who are designing the office concept, said the proposal “responds to the rich history of the existing building while retaining the important conservation and heritage elements as part of the building’s ongoing history”.

The company told City Council that “the proposals will ensure that this important and significant building continues to be used as an integral part of the larger campus.”

Consultant Brady Shipman Martin said the proposed redevelopment of the former No 2 brewery building was “a strategic positive intervention in the first phase of the Guinness District redevelopment”.

The consultants said the program aims to create a vibrant mix of uses, appropriate animation and activities on the ground floor that “will form a coherent part of the emerging Guinness Masterplan” and will “integrate seamlessly into the overall concept”. .
