The Central Bank has agreed to pay about €8 million for the half-completed office block on Dublin’s North Wall quay that Anglo Irish Bank had planned to use as its headquarters before its demise.
The bank will buy the Liam Carroll constructed building from the National Asset Management Agency, Bloomberg reported an anonymous source as saying.
“We don’t comment on speculation about individual transactions, but we’ve previously indicated that we are optimistic that we will secure a satisfactory deal in respect of this property in the medium term and that remains our position,” Ray Gordon, a spokesman for NAMA said.
“No deal has been finalised,” Neil Whoriskey, a central bank spokesman, said. “We don’t comment on the specifics of individual negotiations,” Bloomberg reported him as saying.
