In a statement, the agents said CIE is seeking to secure an income stream and to participate in an income sharing arrangement with the successful tenderer. A 300 year ground lease will be offered for an annual rent or 10pc of the market rent achieved from the new building after construction - whichever is greater.

The area is zoned mixed use developments in the city development subjective to "promote the development of mixed uses and ensures the creation of a vibrant urban area, working in tandem with the principles of sustainable development, transportation and self-sufficiency".

Paul Hannon and Margaret Kelleher, who are managing the sale, said tenders are due by June 2.
