There was a plan for a 300 room hotel in the city centre that the city council painstakingly negotiated details of with the developers for months which was unceremoniously rejected by An BP. If you are in Cork the lack of cranes on the skyline is painfully obvious, literally nothing is being built in the city centre.
The only place anything has been built lately is UCC, with several new buildings, including a new sports centre and student centre. There's a couple of proposals for office blocks on the quayside on derelict sites, but no doubt An BP will find some fault with these too, and decide that the city needs derelict sites far more than it needs office space.

Every time I go to Cork I am amazed at how dodgy most buildings look around patrick st. grand parade and so on. It seems as if the boom passed cork by.
On a more positive note - keep your eyes trained on UCC - a lot of interesting stuff going on there.
