Department of Finance
186. To ask the Minister for Finance the details of vacant sites, properties and land owned by his Department or by bodies and agencies under the aegis of his Department, in the Dublin City Council area; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [36221/16]
In response to the Deputy's query I would like to advise that, as the Office of Public Works (OPW) manages and maintains the State's property portfolio, the Minister with responsibility for the OPW is better placed to advise you on the details of properties managed by that Office.
In respect of the bodies under the aegis of my Department I have been advised that:
1. IBRC (in Special Liquidation) owns a licensed premises in Temple Bar. This was historically in the ownership of Anglo Irish Bank and the Special Liquidators have advised that it will be placed on the market in early 2017.
2. NAMA has ownership of a number of sites which fall within the Dublin Docklands SDZ. However, due to continuing development within the Docklands SDZ, these are all active sites, which form part of the Agency's ongoing engagement with Dublin City Council.
