DEMOLITION work to make way for the €90m Navigation Square office development will begin on Monday.
Contractors are already onsite “soft stripping” the area in preparation for demolition proper.
That will be followed within a few weeks by sheet piling and then full construction work.
Navigation Square will be a 310,000 square foot office complex at Albert Quay East, located between the Sextant and Idle Hour pubs.
The development will be capable of hosting some 3,000 employees when fully occupied and will create 350 construction jobs.
It will consist of four separate buildings to be built on a 2.25-acre site bounded by Albert Quay to the north, Victoria Road, Albert Road and Albert Street.
The development will be undertaken over two basements and six upper floors and will have 100,000 square feet of space for car, bicycle and motorcycle parking.
Construction at Navigation Square begins in the coming weeks and will continue until Christmas 2018 when Block A will be completed.
