Richmond Marketing has agreed a pre-letting of a new logistics facility in Citywest, The Irish Times. The move will allow the company to amalgamate its distribution operation in Park West, with its head office located in the city centre.
Construction has begun, with the new 126,000sq ft building set to finish in the fourth quarter of this year.
“We are delighted to be able to bring all our staff under one roof where we hope to create a fantastic working environment that will foster growth and creativity,” said Stephen Meleady, operations director of Richmond Marketing.
One of Ireland’s foremost brand builders, Richmond Marketing was founded in 1992 by Barry Connolly. It specialises in the beverage, snacks, alcohol and beauty sectors, with brands including Red Bull, Fulfil, Peroni, Asahi, Kopparberg, Hendrick’s Gin, Fever Tree, Vit-Hit, Oatly and many more.
The pre-letting deal was signed with Con McCarthy’s Rockface Developments for the prime warehouse and office HQ at 4065 Kingswood Road in Citywest.
Once the building is finished, Richmond Marketing will enter into a new 25-year lease, incorporating a 15-year break option. Measuring 11,898sq m (128,059 sq ft), the property includes a three-storey grade-A office space. A “unique aesthetic” features a curved roof line, extensive planted green walls and designer wall panels. Its sustainability target is LEED Gold with a Ber rating of A3.
The premises is a short walk from the Luas, while the Citywest Shopping Centre is situated within a three-minute drive.
