Apple's future office, totaling about 36,000 feet of floor space, will reside in Horgan's Quay office buildings. The site features a panoramic view of the River Lee, the docks, the railway yard, and downtown Cork.

CorkBeo has toured the space, gaining a first look into Apple's future office. The building used to be a state-of-the-art distribution facility in the 1800s.

Apple is already Cork's largest employer, hosting 6,000 workers at Holyhil and a smaller office in the city. The new space will bring 400 new employees, and upon completion, will serve as the base of operations for around 3,000 employees in total.

Apple recently celebrated 40 years in Cork, describing it as "four decades of community."

    Other rental space in the area is buoyed by the presence of Apple, and local estate agents expect the market to bob along nicely without being able to pin a specific reason for their optimism.

    ... I'll let myself out.
