A report on RTÉ this morning, in relation to the sale of One Spencer Dock
In May it was reported that Nama had ‘overreached’ in its attempts to sell One Spencer Dock to US investment firm Hines for €242million, following the collapse of the sale.
This morning, it’s being reported that the building has now been sold to London-based investment firm AGC Equity Partners for €242million.
PwC rents the building for €11,779,241 a year.
