On top of the world for €600,000 at Dublin’s Millennium Tower
Until it was overtaken by Capital Dock in 2018, the 17-storey Millennium Tower held the record for Dublin‘s tallest residential building. Located around the corner from Charlotte Quay on the Grand Canal, it stands at the heart of the city’s technology and financial hub, sharing the same neighborhood as Google HQ, Meta (formerly Facebook), Stripe, HSBC and Airbnb, among others.
From its eagle-shaped position on the 11th floor, No69 gives a whole new meaning to the notion of ‘room with a view’. With its triple aspect views from three of its four sides and floor to ceiling windows, the apartment offers spectacular views over the city and Dublin Bay, stretching from Howth in the north of Dublin to Dun Laoghaire in the south and up to at Sugar Loaf in Co Wicklow.
Homeowners can also gaze at the iconic Aviva Stadium and the newly redeveloped Boland’s Quay, where Boland’s Mill was once a focal point during the Easter Rising of 1916. At night, the city’s bright lights reflect in the waters of the River Liffey and the canal basin are a sight to behold.
Built in 1998 by Zoe Developments and designed by O’Mahony Pike Architects, it’s no surprise that the Millennium Tower continues to draw professionals nearly a quarter of a century later. It doesn’t get more central than this, with bars and bistros on the doorstep and St Stephen’s Green, Ballsbridge, the IFSC and Sandymount all within 20 minutes’ walk.
Spreading over 80m², No69 has two double bedrooms, one of which has a balcony – a perfect perch for those with a head for heights to sit back and take in the views. There is also a dual aspect lounge, upgraded kitchen, tiled bathroom and designated parking space. The annual fee is €2,400. No69 Millennium Tower is on the market at €600k with Owen Reilly (01) 677 7100.
