Six Irish shopping centres to be offered in Project Spectrum

There are six Irish shopping centres to be offered for sale in a single lot by Lloyds Banking, named the Spectrum portfolio, in a further move to recover some of the development loans granted by Bank of Scotland Ireland.

Joint agents Bannon and Savills are quoting €120 million for the shopping centres at Douglas in Cork, Quayside in Sligo town, Bloomfields in Dún Laoghaire, Co Dublin, The Mill in Clondalkin, Dublin 22, Kilbarrack in Dublin 5 and Dundalk Retail Park in Co Louth. The sale also includes a rented three-storey office building in Clondalkin and 30 acres of development land adjoining Dundalk Retail Park.

The Spectrum portfolio’s seven assets produce approximately €11 million of income, which at a sale price of €120 million would offering a net initial yield in the region of 9%.

The retail schemes include:

  • Douglas Court Shopping Centre, South of Cork City. WAULT, 7.64 years, 85% occupancy, annual rent: €3.9m
  • Dundalk Retail Park, Dundalk, Co. Louth. WAULT, 8.32 years, annual rent: €2.46m
