Dublin industrial facility at €3.6m promises yield of 9.98%

Roseville Business Park unit comes fully-let to Portakabin at current rent of €395,000 pa


The prospect of a 9.98 per cent net initial yield and a reversionary yield of 6.19 per cent in March 2021 should see strong interest in the sale for €3.6 million of a fully-let industrial facility at Roseville Business Park in Donabate, Co Dublin.

The subject property, which is being offered to the market by Colliers International, comprises a modern detached facility with two-storey offices to the front and warehousing to the rear. The unit is situated on a large secure yard of 3.78 acres used for showroom, storage and assembly/reconditioning purposes. The availability of such a large yard in a sale of this kind is rare. The unit occupies just eight per cent of the site’s overall area, and the yard depth runs to 110 metres.

The property is let to Portakabin (Ireland) Limited by way of a 25-year full repairing and insuring (FRI) lease from March 1st, 2003. The lease provides for a parent company guarantee and the tenant has the benefit of a break option in March 2026, subject to 12 months’ notice, leaving an unexpired lease term of six years to the break and eight years to expiry.
