CBRE appointed to manage sale of Ireland’s tallest commercial building

Belfast, June 2014 – CBRE has been appointed to handle the sale of Ireland’s tallest commercial building, Windsor House. The Bedford Street property, which has been put on the market seeking offers over £5 million, is a landmark city centre building that extends to approximately 122, 550 sq ft.

The property currently produces a gross income of approximately £204,144 per annum and the sale is expected to generate significant interest due to the limited availability of quality office accommodation the Belfast market.

Gavin Elliott, CBRE said, “Windsor House offers a unique opportunity to refurbish a landmark building, in a tax efficient manner. Belfast has developed into one Ireland’s premier business cities and has been extremely successful in attracting Foreign Direct Investment. However, one issue has been the lack of quality office space in the city and a comprehensive refurbishment of this property will provide much-needed quality office accommodation as well as strong fundamentals for rental growth in the future.”

The 80-metre building, located in the heart of Belfast’s office district has some 22 upper floors of offices, incorporates two retail units and 96 car-parking spaces. CBRE is seeking offers of £5,000,000 for their client’s interest and a purchase at this level would reflect a capital value price of £40.80 per square feet.
