It will be interesting to see what the facade looks like when its finished. If its majority glass that tends to give the illusion of extra height. Hope the facade is nice.

Its literally flyimg up !
They have commenced the curtain walling and the other blocks are coming up at the base.
It started after Cornmarket St. shopping centre and probably be finished before it !
darkman wrote:Thanks for the pics. Excellent. In the context of Cork being built on a small scale this must look very big indeed. I think its a very good project and at least there is some ambition in it. Like I say it depends on the facade though as to how it will really look. Personally id prefer to see a glass facade.

Oh and yes you have a very big chip on your shoulder. Your in denial....

It goes a little like this:
Dublin is crap, therefore by default Cork is great. QED.
No joy folks, I'm afraid.
