The North Block holds a prominent position at the entrance to Rockfield Central. The mixed-use block extends to 38,107 sq ft (3,540 sq m) over eight storeys, giving it panoramic views of Dublin..
The building was completed in 2004 and boasts a brick facade with curved and glazed balconies on each level, and a vaulted roof. Each floor plate has the potential to be split into two self-contained units with a central core running through the building.
The North Block is 93% occupied. 81% of the current income derives from office tenants including VHI Investments, Global Diagnostics, Repromed Ireland and MedServ. The remaining income is from the ground floor retail which is occupied by Brickyard Gastropub and a barber shop.
