4 of a kind… North Docklands Apartments | Looking south from on high

The Sunday Independent, Sunday, April 24th 2016

Perched high on the eighth floor of Block K in Castleforbes Square, is a two-bedroom apartment boasting views worthy of any master or mistress of the universe. It sits in a well-managed development at the Point Village end of the north quays in the heart of the Dublin Docklands, positioned adjacent to what will be the new Central Bank headquarters. Agent Owen Reilly says that No 471 is in turn-key condition and the apartment faces south with panoramic views across the docklands, framed by the Aviva Stadium and Dublin Mountains.

The apartment has been upgraded recently in readiness for sale. There is an entrance hall with a spacious utility closet and hot press, a generously proportioned and light-filled living/dining room with access to a south-facing terrace and a smart kitchen fitted with vanilla gloss units and integrated appliances.

The two double bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and share a bathroom and there are new LHZ Combination Electric energy saving radiators throughout.

Castleforbes Square is a location in high demand from both investors and owner-occupiers, being only 10 minutes to O’Connell Street and 20 to Grafton Street. The IFSC and Grand Canal Dock are also within a short walk.

Key amenities in the area include the Three Arena, Odeon Cinema and Gibson Hotel, while transport links are good, with The Point Luas stop on the doorstep.

Major multinational employers already in the area include KPMG, Price Waterhouse Cooper, Yahoo and Facebook, with many more corporate tenants due to occupy the new developments on both sides of the river.

Additional pedestrian bridges across the Liffey are due to be installed and will make access to the South Docklands even easier.

No 471 comes with a secure parking space and the building has an attractive communal roof garden. There is an annual management charge of €1,380 and Owen Reilly estimates the monthly rental value at €1,850.
