Global banking leader gets green light for massive expansion in Kilkenny
A global banking company is showing its faith in Kilkenny as a destination to work as it embarks on a significant expansion plan.
Kilkenny-based global banking and financial services giant State Street has been granted planning permission for its project to significantly expand its campus in the city.
State Street International (Ireland) Ltd applied to Kilkenny Council Council for permission to build a new four-storey office building on the site of its campus at the IDA Business and Technology Park just off the Ring Road late last year.
The new development will consist of the construction of a four-storey office building plus rooftop plantroom, with total floor area of approximately 6100 mt sq.
The new construction will also see the creation of a single storey services building with a floor area of approximately 229m2, new entrances from existing IDA Business Park road network, 406 new car parking places, bicycle parking facilities, circulation routes and pathways, site lighting, landscaping, surface water drainage and attenuation, connections to existing services, and all associated works.
State Street currently employs more than 2,500 people in Ireland across four sites in Kilkenny, Dublin, Drogheda and Naas.
