It's been reported that property owned by billionaire Irish buisness magnet Denis O’Brien is set to become part of a new cultural hub planned for the Dublin Docklands.
The two buildings, formerly BJ Marine warehouses, will reportedly be converted into an art gallery, a digital exhibition space and a café, according to The Sunday Business Post.
Although O’Brien, who snapped up the buildings – located on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay - from NAMA in 2013 for a figure reported to be as low as €1 million, has not responded to the proposed project, it's reported that a holding company has submitted applications to change the use of the buildings.
The applications for the buildings are believed to inlcude an art gallery, exhibition hall, tea room, a ground-floor “digital/media” exhibition space and an al fresco dining area.
