🙂 Cobh Marina Development Co. (Ascon Construction) have resubmitted a revised proposal for their extensive Cobh Marina development with Cobh Town Council. The project has been scaled down after a refusal issued by ABP to their previous application. Up to 135 new residential units, a hotel, moorings, cafes and cther commercial facilities facing out onto a boardwalk etc etc will be constructed if successful.
🙂 John Cleary Developments has submitted an application with CCC to develop 17 business and light industrial units on lands adjoining the North Point Business Park at Kilnap (Blackpool). The development is primarily focused on nurturing start-up businesses and could provide up to 300 new jobs.
🙂 The Board of the Mercy University Hospital at Grenville Place and Henry Street have applied to extend their theatre facilities by an additional floor as part of the Catherine MacCauley Block of the hospital. This will bring the structure to 5 storeys – and is designed by Reddy O’Riordan Staehli Architects – who have also been working on a new 6-storey car-park, urology and minor-surgeries development plan for the newly purchased lands at the North Mall Distellery Fields. Also related to the MUH, Sean Meehan who applied for O.P.P. for a revised 3-deck multi-storey car-park and commercial units facility at Grenville Place (built on stilts over the River Lee – adjacent to MUH) is expecting a planning decision soon. The project could have a significant impact on the River Lee aesthetics at Grenville Place – and is sure to experience major unrest if F.P.P. is sought,
And just a footnote about a prev. post I made – it seems now, that Diesel (the Cork-based men’s fashion store) have secured a short-term lease agreement on the former Clinton Cards premises on Patrick’s Street as long-term negotiations with Monsoon continue between the fashion chain and landlord, Joe Donnelly.
Here’s a drawing of the proposed new ‘super-pub’ for Little Hanover Street to the rear of Galvin’s Off-Licence on Washington Street West. I suppose this is significant in the sense that the bar will be a further addition to an area that is experiencing a notable amount of high-quality, high-aesthetic development. In it’s immediate area Jurys Hotel site is to see a 130m redevelopment by O’Callaghan Properties & Jurys Doyle Hotel Group (Riga Ltd) (see prev. posts), The Kino Arthouse Cinema is currently in planning for a new 4-storey, 3-screen cineplex designed by Dennehy + Dennehy (see prev. posts), Phillisview Properties are nearing completion on a stunning new apartment and commercial development at the junction of Sharman Crawford Bridge & Washington Street West (designed by CMG) and Frank Sheahan is completing a new 6m euro student development just down the street (designed by Jack Coughlan & Assoc., also see prev. post).
