Mixed-use D8 building with guide price of €1.3m changes hands


40 James’s Street, a four-storey building of modern accommodation, is situated in a prime location close to Dublin city centre

 Colliers International have sold 40 James’s Street, Dublin 8 - a mixed-use opportunity with excellent value add potential, in an increasingly popular city centre location.


The property comprises a modern four storey, mixed-use building that presents in excellent condition and comprises modern accommodation behind an attractive, period façade. Extending to approx. 5,500 sq ft, the property is laid out to provide a retail unit on the ground floor, a spacious two bedroom apartment on the 1st floor, with office accommodation of approx. 4,000 sq ft above and to the rear.


The property generated interest from both owner occupiers and opportunistic investors who were attracted by the opportunity to secure a high yielding investment on letting the vacant office space. The retail unit and apartment are both fully let, producing €31,275 per annum. On letting the vacant offices, Colliers estimate the incoming purchaser will achieve a yield of excess 9%.


The property is well located enjoying all the amenities the City Centre has to offer, with excellent transport links available in the immediate vicinity. The James’s LUAS stop is located just a short walk away, providing access to the city centre and Heuston station, within minutes.


The location is undergoing major regeneration, with the opening of new hotels, offices and student accommodation, while St James’s Hospital will soon be home to the new National Children’s Hospital. It was also recently announced that Ballymore are the preferred bidder for the redevelopment of St James Gate, which will be a new city quarter that will greatly enhance the area.
