The online professional networking website LinkedIn is to grow its presence in Dublin city.

It is set to expand its European headquarters by 430,000 sq. ft from October.

Property company IPUT says it has pre-let the office space at Wilton Park to the firm.

It will be on a 25-year lease, with a term certain of 12 years.

Construction has started on the first phase, One Wilton Park, which was fully pre-let to LinkedIn in 2018.

LinkedIn has also now agreed to pre-let the additional three inter-connecting office buildings - Two, Three and Four.

Construction of these will begin in 2020 and is set for completion in 2023.

Last June, the company announced plans to create 800 new jobs at its operations here.

The headcount at its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) headquarters in Dublin is to hit 2,000 people by this summer.

The Wilton Park estate in Dublin 2 is made up of the former Fitzwilton House, Wilton Park House, Gardner House, Lad Lane Apartments and a one-acre park on the banks of the Grand Canal.

Overall it will deliver more than 600,000 sq. ft. of office, retail and restaurant space - together with room for 500 bicycles and 122 cars.

Niall Gaffney, IPUT chief executive, said: "We are proud to partner with LinkedIn, a global technology brand that shares our ambition to sustainably develop a new destination in Dublin's central business district.

"This major development will be a key driver of long-term returns for our shareholders.
