New sustainable logistics centre for Dublin

21st February 2024

IPUT Real Estate has secured planning permission to develop “one of Europe’s greenest logistics parks”.

The largest owner of offices and logistics assets in Dublin, will develop an additional 12 units spanning 1.7 million sq ft at the  Nexus Logistics Park, located near the Cherryhound Interchange of the M2 motorway. The new units bring the park to 2.5 million sq ft.

IPUT has committed to achieving BER A2 and LEED Gold certifications, with an emphasis on eco-friendly construction methodologies such as glue-laminated timber frames, which will reduce embodied carbon by 27% compared with steel.

Nexus Logistics Park will also incorporate a range of sustainable design elements, including roof-mounted solar panels, rainwater harvesting systems, and advanced building envelopes for enhanced thermal performance. 

IPUT plans to invest in enhancing the public realm and amenities for both occupiers and the local community. The development will feature sports facilities, cycle paths, outdoor gym facilities and cultural installations.

Michael Clarke, chief investment officer of IPUT, said: "Our ambition is for Nexus to be one of the most sustainable logistics parks in Europe. Our investment in Nexus supports a greener economy while providing amenities that serve both our occupiers and the local community.”
