Currently available for rent and right in the centre of Cork city, is Stapleton House.
The modern, architecturally-designed, mixed-use commercial building is situated in a prominent corner location on Cork’s Oliver Plunkett Street. Those who know the street will likely be very familiar with this unit, featuring as it does a striking full height glazed façade and a substantial 14m frontage to the street. It has the benefit of additional basement levels for storage or other uses. The ground floor is a self-contained retail unit which extends to around 4,043 sq ft.
The four upper floors are served by lift and stairs access with floor sizes ranging from 2,587 sq ft to 4,490 sq ft. The agent says these could be let on a floor by floor basis or as a combination of floors. The offices will be finished as open-plan to a high specification including suspended ceiling with ceiling tiles, recessed lighting and air-conditioning. Units will also come with a high quality, carpet floor finish and fully fitted bathrooms.
Brian Edwards, MD of CBRE and fresh from the official opening of the firm’s offices in Cork, describes the ground floor as: “An excellent opportunity to trade from a modern retail unit in a prime high footfall location.”
He also feels that, given the location and subject to planning permission, it may be an ideal opportunity for a restaurant business. Edwards says that businesses who wish to keep employees happy will want a high quality, modern work environment with easy access to amenities. He feels that this building, in what he describes as an “excellent location”, will fully satisfy these needs.
Rent for the ground floor retail unit is being quoted at €140,000 per annum with upper office floors available at €24 psf.
