The group behind the acquisition of Ireland’s Ardmore Studios and Troy Studios in August 2021 has been selected to develop the new Greystones Media Campus, a planned and shovel-ready state-of-the-art film and television studio campus Greystones. Hackman Capital Partners and partner Square Mile Capital Management will undertake a two-phased development is a joint venture with the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (ISIF), Ireland’s sovereign development fund and Capwell, a Sisk family investment vehicle.
The total investment in the project is estimated at nearly €300 million.
When fully developed, Greystones Media Campus will be Ireland’s largest studio complex with more than 670,000 square feet of studio space on 44 acres with sea views, including 14 state-of-the-art sound stages. The first 7 sound stages and associated office, workshop and backlot spaces will be delivered in mid-2024.
The development will double the high-end film and television stage capacity in Ireland to help meet current tenant demand as a growing number of international and domestic productions are vying for existing space.
