Planning Granted for Enterprise House
With work already commenced on the Frascati Shopping Centre, it will come as no surprise of other plans to develop other areas of the village in South County Dublin. Across the road from the shopping centre is another landmark building in the village, Enterprise House. Enterprise house is a commercial premises and houses the insurance company Zurich Life Assurance plc. Zurich is one of the most successful life insurance companies in the country and the site in Blackrock accommodates the investment team responsible for funds under management of approximately 19.4 billion. The building has served the company well over the years but it is now time for a face lift to match the success the company has experienced and to catapult the infrastructure into the 21st century. Planning has already been granted so it’s just a matter of time before the demolition of the existing Enterprise House will commence.

This re-development will no doubt trigger the surrounding infrastructure to reassess its architectural position in the community which will ultimately lead to a restructuring of their façades or complete demolition and rebuild like the Zurich office.
