The chq building is a renovated former tobacco store located along the River Liffey in Dublin's International Financial Services Centre [IFSC}.
Previously known as Stack A, the building was originally a tobacco store with vaults beneath to store wine. It was designed by one of the most remarkable engineers of his era, the Scot John Rennie. It is one of the few Docklands warehouses protected under the Planning Acts. It is steeped in local history and traditionally locals knew it as the ‘Banquet Hall' and was the venue for one of the great social events of the mid-nineteenth century, the Crimean War banquet. This Grade One listed building is considered one of the finest pieces of 19th century architecture in Ireland. The building is located close to the centre of the city of and is well served by an extensive public transport network.
The Stack A building is owned by the Authority. Following an extensive programme of refurbishment by the Authority it was rebranded as the chq building and opened in November 2007.
