Reply To: Look at de state of Cork, like!
Congrats to the city manager – forced an attitude change in landlords and massive amounts of retails space has been (will be) released coming on stream in the next few years. Too many of Cork’s inner city “prime” retails units are too small for suitable modern shops (think smaller units of grafton st). My only problem is that Owen O’Callaghan seems to have his fingers in almost all of the developments. The J+P building, the formers Guys site opposite the Bodega, (possibly) the Examiner site – AND Mahon Point… while he has proved his retail pedigree and ability to draw big names (check out lineup in Liffey Valley and Mahon Point) will he be happy to cannibalise one developments draw to suit another. Me thinks not.
