THREE industrial sites have been launched by CBRE with a combine list price of close to €7m.

A site at the IDA business park in Newbridge and another site in Dublin are being brought to market for the first time, while another property in Arklow has been relaunched at a reduced price.

Under the instructions of receiver Grant Thornton, the former Curragh Carpets facility in Newbridge has been formally put up for sale with a guide price of €2.45m.

The property is located in the Newbridge IDA Business Park, some 2km south of Newbridge town centre. Other occupiers in the park include Lily O'Brien's, Proctor and Gamble and Comerford Brothers Limited.

The 9,457sqm facility is set on a secure site of approximately five acres and comprises two main sections extending to 6,075sqm and 3,312sqm respectively along with an additional link building of 70sqm.

CBRE say the warehouses "are both finished to an extremely high specification with a clear height of 8m".

"The warehouses also benefit from a clear span with no internal columns along offering maximum flexibility with full sprinkler system throughout. The overall site benefits from excellent accessibility with separate HGV vehicular access to the rear of the site."

Jarlath Lynn of CBRE commented: "It is a superb opportunity to acquire a competitively priced building which has excellent flexibility to re-configure depending on occupier requirements, at a fraction of what it would cost to build."
