Tallaght Plaza sold

A mixed-use development with a hotel, nightclub, offices and retail units known as The Plaza in Tallaght, Dublin 24, has been bought by an Irish investment company for a figure believed to be about €15 million – almost €1 million above the guide price.


The investment was sold on the instructions of receiver Declan Taite of Duff & Phelps and is producing a rental income of €1,302,350, according to selling agent CBRE. The initial yield will be in the region of 8.5 per cent. There is scope to increase the rent roll by letting vacant office space in the complex.

The latter endeavour would involve increasing the Holiday Inn’s current room stock by 100 to 214.
