St. Vincent’s Hospital in Fairview, Dublin 3, is seeking a partner to develop a new purpose built hospital facility of 100 beds, in exchange for a significant undeveloped landholding, and existing hospital buildings.

Property advisor, Savills Ireland, has been instructed to seek a development partner for the 21.40-acre site situated to the north of Dublin city centre.

The property comprises a number of historic buildings sitting on a large landholding between Drumcondra and Fairview and accessed from Richmond Road.

John Swarbrigg, Director, Savills Ireland said “In return for the timely delivery of the new St Vincent’s Mental Health Campus, the hospital will transfer the remaining undeveloped lands to the successful partner. The undeveloped lands are approximately 13.39 acres and could accommodate up to 600 residential units – subject to planning permission – in a location that is highly sought after. The undeveloped lands will be transacted on a phased basis, in conjunction with the delivery of the new St Vincent’s Mental Health Campus.”
