The landmark building in the IFSC was built under public private partnership - the building is owned by the State through the Office of Public Works (OPW) but was built by a subsidiary of Spencer Dock Development Company owned by developers Johnny Ronan and Richard Barrett of Treasury Holdings and the developer Harry Crosbie, who then 
had a right to operate the building.

Spencer Dock Development is now under the control of liquidators Paul McCann and Michael McAteer of Grant Thornton who have put the remaining 21-year operating licence up for sale. Rubicon Infrastructure Advisors has been appointed as financial advisor for the sale process.

They are selling a concession contract to operate and maintain the CCD, ownership of a 320-space car park underneath the building and the licence to build and operate a hotel adjacent to the CCD.
