Google parent company Alphabet is abandoning a plan to rent office space for up to 2000 employees in Dublin, which would have been one of the biggest real estate deals in the Irish capital of recent years. No reason was given by the American technology group to walk away from a lease.
Google was talking about the rent of over 18,000 square meters to office space in southern Dublin, on top of the other locations the company has in the city. Google is a major player in the Dublin real estate market with thousands of employees working there. Other American technology companies such as Twitter and Facebook are also active with staff and office space in Dublin.
