29 Fitzwilliam Square, Dublin 2
Number 29 is located on the favoured south side of Fitzwilliam Square in the heart of the central business district in Dublin 2. Fitzwilliam Square is one of the most prestigious locations in Georgian Dublin.
Every conceivable amenity offered by the city centre is within easy access. Government Buildings, an array of corporate and institutional headquarters as well as many professional services providers are all adjacent. Public transport links include LUAS (Green Line), DART and multiple Dublin Bus Routes.
Fitzwilliam Square and the surrounding area is mostly in office use although there has, in recent years, been an emerging trend of returning the magnificent Georgian buildings to their original residential use.
Numbers 29 is one of two interconnecting, four-storey over garden level, terraced Georgian buildings with a rectangular site to the rear which currently includes a two-storey over basement mews office and parking for approximately 3 cars. The gross internal area of No. 29 is c. 550 sq.m. (5,920 sq.ft.). The net internal area is c. 379 sq.m. (4,082 sq.ft.)
The building is currently rented to an English Language School (in conjunction with the adjoining No. 30). Full vacant possession will be available in January 2018.
Planning Permission has been granted for the demolition of the mews offices, the construction of an exceptional mews house and for the separation of the front building from the currently interconnected No. 30. The permission also allows the front building to return to office use.
This is a unique opportunity to acquire a significant investment and development property on Fitzwilliam Square. The completed development of refurbished Georgian office and a large, luxury mews house will represent a very significant and valuable property.
