The Sunday Business Post has reported that the new owners of the former Clerys department store are seeking permission to build two additional floors for a planned hotel on the site.
The former department store was acquired last year for €63 million by Europa Capital, which is part of the Rockefeller Group.
The American firm operates Irish companies Oakmount and Core Capital.
