Just thought I’d post a new image of the redevelopment of Cork County Hall – main contractors Ascon Ltd, Design by Shay Cleary. The 60m euro redevelopment is due to be complete on schedule and within budget this November 2005. The project provides a new 700-space multistorey car-park. A 6-storey extension to the main County Hall tower providing an extra 40,000sq ft of office space (bringing it to a total of 75,000sq ft), new council chambers, heightened roof-top – to incl. a new hospitality suite with panoramic 360 degree views, provision of a naturally ventilated heating and cooling system through the installation of a glass-panel exoskeleton around the exterior oof the tower. Plus all landscaping, access road and refurbishment ancillary efforts.

Those Eglinton Street drawings will be posted soon.


😮 As prev. reported, Beacon Court Group (i.e. Paddy Shovlin, Michael Cullen and Mark Redmond) will be lodging their application for a 500m euro medical campus and residential development earmarked for a 60-acre site near Bandon Road Roundabout within the next week to 2 weeks w/ Cork County Council.

The development will consist of a new private hospital, hospice, physio-centre, up to 300 houses (over 16 acres), amenity areas, park & ride facility, health centre and more, yet to be clarified.
