Central Bank Said to Buy Anglo Irish Tower for $10 Million

Ireland’s central bank agreed to pay about 8 million euros ($10 million) for a half-completed Dublin office block that’s synonymous with the real-estate crash, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The bank will buy the building on North Wall Quay from the National Asset Management Agency, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the details are private. Anglo Irish Bank Corp. had planned to use the tower as its headquarters before the company’s collapse helped push Ireland toward the international bailout the country agreed in 2010.
