A small infill site in Harold’s Cross that may suit a build-to-rent scheme is on the market at €1.85 million on the instructions of receiver EY through agent Kelly Walsh.

The site, at 146-156 Harold’s Cross Road in Dublin 6, comprises a row of shops with some residential units overhead that extends to a combined 948sq m (10,206sq ft). The retail units are vacant but three of the residential units are occupied. However, the agent expects full vacant possession of the property by mid-summer.

Opposite Harold’s Cross Park, the site is zoned residential and, subject to planning permission, could suit a small apartment scheme of about 16 units.

The site has about 50m (165ft) of frontage to Harold’s Cross Road and is 1.6km from the city centre. Numerous bus routes are close at hand in this long-established residential location.

Albert Hall and his family operated an electrical wholesale business out of the buildings for circa 30 years. Mr Hall opened Hall Electrical on the row and accumulated the adjoining buildings over the years.

He also opened a lighting shop called Hall of Lights which he ran with his daughter Nikki.

This site last came on the market in November 2016 at €1.8 million through agent JLL but failed to sell at the time.

A retail property let to New Look at a passing rent of €125,000 in Clonmel, Co Tipperary, is on the market through Moynihan Curran Chartered Surveyors for more than €1 million. At this price a sale would reflect a net initial yield of 11.52 per cent.

New Look’s lease has another 11 years to run until expiry in February 2030 but there is a tenant break option in about six years.

The town centre property, at 12 O’Connell Street, extends to 743sq m (8,000sq ft) and is close to Penneys, River Island, Elverys, Heatons and Shoe Zone.

The same agent is also offering a large industrial facility at Ardfinnan in Co Tipperary for sale. It has significant frontage and comprises two interconnecting industrial buildings extending to a combined 10,544sq m (113,496sq ft) on a site of 8.8 acres. There is office space in both buildings on the ground and first floors.

The facility, formerly an insulation manufacturing plant run by Moy Isover for 35 years, closed in 2008 with the loss of 44 jobs. The closure was blamed on the downturn in construction at the time.
