One of Dublin’s top 20 law firms, McDowell Purcell Solicitors, is to embark on a sale and leaseback of its offices at the Capel Building at St Mary’s Abbey in Dublin 7.

Ross Fogarty of agent Knight Frank is seeking in excess of €3.1 million for the fourth-floor offices, which extend to 526sq m (5,662sq ft) and will provide a net return of about 7 per cent after standard acquisition costs of 8.46 per cent are deducted. The agreed annual rent of €235,000 will equate to €392 per sq m (€37/sq ft) once a rental value of €2,500 is attributed to each of the 10 secure basement car spaces.
