Green Reit’s 63 apartments in Tallaght bought for €9.25m – Irish Times, 8 November 2017


SeaPoint Capital acquires one, two and three-bedroom units in Arena Centre

Green Reit’s long term plan to offload 63 apartments at its mixed-use Arena Centre in Tallaght, Co Dublin, will finally proceed following a decision by SeaPoint Capital to acquire the portfolio for €9.25 million.

Completed in 2008, the Arena Centre has a mixture of retail and offices as well as 230 apartments and a 119-bedroom hotel.

The mix of 63 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments is located beside public transport services as well as WoodiesLidl and Bank of Ireland.

SeaPoint Capital chief executive Kieran Gilmartin said that, as a long-term investor, SeaPoint was looking for more residential opportunities in good locations with growth potential.

According to Caroline McCarthy of Green Property Reit Ventures, residential is not a core-use class for Green Reit. She said the disposal of the residential element represented a 130 per cent return on the original acquisition cost in late 2013.

Michele Jackson at TWM acted for the purchaser and Brian Shields at JLLadvised Green Reit.
