Salesforce is now also building a Tower in Dublin

Salesforce is now also building a Tower in Dublin

Salesforce completed the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco last year. Last October it announced the Salesforce Tower in Atlanta. And today it announced a tower in Dublin.

Salesforce’s first office in Dublin was opened in 2001. Since then, it has been expanded to 1,400 employees. Today’s announcement represents a pretty big promise to expand even more, with another 1,500 people expected to be able to work in Dublin over the next five years.

The new tower

The new Salesforce Tower Dublin is planned to become a campus, consisting of four interconnected buildings around the River Liffey. In the end, it covers an area of 430,000 square metres and the first employees should be able to work there in the course of 2021. According to Martin Shanahn, CEO of IDA Ireland, who is responsible for attracting foreign investors for the Irish government, this has been one of the largest and most successful operations in the organisation’s 70-year history.

Salesforce saves neither cost nor effort when it comes to construction. It will have an immersive video lobby and a reception area for Salesforce employees, customers and partners. This space, called the Ohana Floor, can also be used by non-profit companies. It is also planned to build roads along the river to connect the campus with the city centre.

Salesforce also plans to make the project one of the most sustainable construction projects in Dublin to date. This means that the building will be built in a CO2-neutral way and that the building will run entirely on renewable energy sources. These include solar panels on the roof.

Finally, Salesforce wants to show that it is also committed to the local community in some way. To this end, it allocates 1 million dollars to Educate Together, which tries to ensure equality in schools. Salesforce has been supporting the initiative for years with free software, among other things.
