Two industrial units at Sandyford Business District seek €5m

Nos 77 and 90-91 Furze Road offer immediate rental income and development potential

The growth in popularity among major employers of the Sandyford Business District in south Dublin is expected to result in strong interest from developers, investors and owner-occupiers in two industrial units that have been brought to the market for a total guide price of €5 million.

Located at 77 and 90-91 Furze Road respectively, the properties are being offered for sale by Paul Scannell of HWBC.

The building comprises 24,400sq ft of warehouse and office space with 45 car spaces and yard space to the rear. The facility incorporates 9,850sq ft of office accommodation with the balance given over to warehouse space. The building requires modernisation for an occupier or could be developed for an alternative use such as car showrooms, subject to planning permission. The guide price is €2.5 million (excluding VAT).


No 90-91 Furze Road is fully occupied by the Department of Agriculture on a 35-year full repairing and insuring (FRI) lease from March 1986.
