Kennedy Wilson Acquires 124-Unit Northbank Apartments in Dublin, Ireland for €45 Million
Situated in Dublin’s North Docks, Northbank is located just 50 meters from Kennedy Wilson’s existing 84-unit Liffey Trust apartments. The two buildings benefit from great transport links as the LUAS Red line is immediately adjacent connecting to Dublin’s city centre and main train stations in five minutes.
“The successful acquisition of Northbank in such close proximity to our Liffey Trust asset allows us to leverage our existing presence and implement our value-add asset management strategy, including adding onsite management and amenities to serve both properties. We believe we have a great opportunity to grow our near-term NOI by undertaking additional refurbishments to enhance Northbank’s rental growth prospects,” said Mary Ricks, President and CEO of Kennedy Wilson Europe.
“We are particularly pleased to secure Northbank as one of the few remaining unbroken 100+ unit multifamily assets left to trade in
Completed in 2007, Northbank includes 31 one-bedroom, 64 two-bedroom and 29 three-bedroom apartments (of which 75% are occupied or with leases agreed), secure underground car parking and 16,000 sq ft of currently vacant retail space. It benefits from significant development in the area, with nearly 2 million sq ft of new office buildings either under construction or planned for this sub-market.
