The Elysian is a mixed-use complex of a number of connected 6-8 storey buildings, with a landmark 17-storey tower on the southwest corner of the site. The tower is 71 metres (233 ft) to the top floor, making it the tallest storeyed building in the Republic of Ireland, surpassing the 67-metre County Hall, also in Cork. A decorative pinnacle gives The Elysian’s tower an overall height of 81 metres. The building was largely empty for many years with the expected take-up of apartments slower than expected.
