Funny you say that mortgageboy. I heard an interview with them on the radio a week or so ago where they basically said they thought it was a bubble

Maybe. I don't know what their future plans are. But they've done well so far. Eg,

"With some 130,000 square feet set aside for apartments in Number One Ballsbridge, Comer and his partners stand to clear a net profit of around €25m on the residential element of the development alone according to property industry sources.

Which is pretty impressive when one considers the figure doesn't even include the income to be derived from selling the car parking spaces in the underground four-storey car park.

Nor does it include the money to be made from the 175,000 square feet of office space at Number One Ballsbridge, which Comer says has already attracted significant interest from what he describes as "big multinationals". Once the costs of building those offices are stripped out, the Galway-born developer and his Mayo-based partners will be looking at millions in pure profit.

Comer is the first to recognise how good a deal they got with the Ballsbridge site. Commenting on the massive interest in prime Irish property assets among international investors, he said: "It's not that easy to buy stuff anymore. In 2011, we had the market to ourselves for about six months, and then gradually you would have another bidder. You thought they were bluffing you for a while, and then last year you knew they weren't bluffing you anymore." ... 75775.html
And they bought plenty more in 2011/12.

Luke Comer, co-founder of their international property development company, Comer Homes, described the 210-acre site as "the most strategic piece of real estate in Europe."

"It is close to the M50, the airport, Dublin Port and the city centre. It is an absolutely ideal place to develop both homes and commercial space," he said.

I've heard it is close to Mars and Tokio as well, as more strategic than Suez.

Why it was so windy there?... I am out.

It's all grand
