Gas Living

An iconic building in Ireland is for sale at £37m.

Grant Thornton, acting on behalf of Ulster Bank, has appointed Savills to sell The Alliance Building in the Gasworks­ development in Ringsend,­ Dublin 4. The asking price reflects a 7.25% yield.

Why is it iconic? well, the development was created on the site where an old gas holder once stood. The original frame was retained and a new structure was created in the centre.

Another example of gas living can be found at Gasometer City in Austria. At this scheme, the architects actually retained the main internal structures of these 19th century gas tanks.
