Canada House: set a new benchmark rent for Dublin city centre of €60 per sq ft
Goodbody stockbrokers, that venerable old Ballsbridge institution, has always been a cultured sort of place, the traditional home of Ireland’s “old money”. So you would expect its best people to know their Latin, right?
The Irish Times revealed on Thursday that Denis O’Brien’s Canada House development, LXV, located on St Stephen’s Green, has set a new benchmark rent for Dublin city centre of €60 per sq ft.
