Prime Retail and Residential Investment Opportunity

51/52 Mary Street, Dublin 1

28 September, Dublin - CBRE announced today that they are launching 51/52 Mary Street in Dublin 1, a prime city centre retail and residential investment property with a rent roll of €418,200 per annum, to the open market for Sale by Private Treaty.

The modern, mixed use building occupies a prominent position on Mary Street, with extensive return frontage on to Wolfe Tone Street. This is one of Dublin’s principal high street retailing districts with the Jervis and ILAC shopping centres very close by. International retailers in the vicinity include M&S, Penneys, River Island and Topshop, while the very popular Church Bar and Restaurant is located immediately opposite.

The property comprises a four storey corner building with the ground floor retail unit of approx. 2,357 sq ft, in restaurant use and leased to the successful restaurant brand, Nando’s under a 15 year lease from 2011. The current rent for this element is €105,000 per annum, and with the June 2016 rent review outstanding there is potential for a further increase.

The upper floors comprise 17 extensively refurbished apartments in total; 10 x one beds, 6 x two beds and 1 x two bed duplex and provide contemporary living space within the city centre. The 17 apartments are now leased in their entirety to Roomyield Hospitality Ltd. for a term of 4 years and 9 months from September 2016. The passing rent on this section is €313,200 per annum. Roomyield Hospitality trading as Keycollection.ie operates a number of similar, successful short let residential schemes in the city centre.

CBRE are offering a guide price of €7.75 million for the entire, which equates to an initial yield of 5.17%, net of standard purchasers costs.
