I think there are a few interesting projects in development around Cork at the moment -

The UCC Environmental Research Institute on the Lee Road is a noteworthy example by Bucholz McEvoy Architects; although I do believe its location is unsuitable.

Patrick A. Cashman's design on 21 Lavitts Quay is innovative and has a strong presence - hopefully the outcome will be as pretty as those striking computer generated images - such as that available on the auctioneer's website under Commercial Property.
