Yet another addition to the Section 50 market in Cork city – Frank Sheahan’s 15 apartment development on Lynch’s Street (just off Little Hanover Street and Sheare’s Street) has been officially launched. The new student accomodation building is being constructed by P.J. Hegarty’s and was designed by Jack Coughlan and Associates on the site of the former Club FX nightclub. Each apartment contains between 3 & 4 bedrooms, parking is provided at a basement level for vehicles and bicycles. The ground floor will act as a commercial facility in conjunction with a bar/nightclub extention.
This development, and considering the history behind it’s incarnation, speaks little to me to say the least. Unimpressive as it may be, it still makes the Victoria Mills student development look like an accident.
Frank Sheahan’s other large development at the moment, the Section 23 office development along the Blackpool By-pass, also designed by Jack Coughlan and constructed by P.J. Hegarty at least has a bit more panache to it.
