Re: Jurys Redevelopment Images & other stuff!
Well I did promise you VIS images of the Jurys Hotel redevelopment by O’Callaghan Properties. However, I was able to print a number of other images (these unfortunately are in black & white and to top it all off, my scanner is useless as most of you probably already know! I’m getting a new one, I promise) – and do not convey the development adequately), but better than nothing, at least for now. I’ll keep sussing the formats out.
The redeveloped site from a east-west bird’s eye perspective.
A before and after picture of the development (east to west) along Lancaster Quay.
– once again my apologises for the poor quality, but I’ll work on it to rectify that soon.
🙂 Rosridge Limited (James G. O’Mahony & Beacon Court Group), Enable Ireland and St. Patrick’s Hospice lodged their outline planning application with Cork County Council for a 500m euro medical campus on the fringe of the city’s Western suburbs at the Bandon Round Roundabout (as prev. posted). The development will include a 100-bedroom privaet hospital w/ full facilities, a 100-bed hospice (for St. Patricks), private 43-bed facility for Enable Ireland, park & ride, associated medical accommodation, consultant suites etc. Consulting Engineers are Malachy Walsh & Partners.
😡 And regarding Horgan’s Quay, CIE Chairman John Lynch has stated (yesterday at the official opening of the refurbished Cork Bus Station) that the development of Horgan’s Quay is not a priority of the company for the time being. However, the previously mentioned redevelopment of Kent Station is due to see an application lodged with CCC mid-2005, with the station ready for 2007. Under CIE reigns it will be at least then before Horgan’s Quay sees any movement, lest something remarkable happens, according to Mr. Lynch.
Also at the opening of the Bus Station, Minister Martin Cullen refused to answer questions regarding the supposed removal of air-bridges at Cork Airport’s new terminal. Why is that Minister?
-> A “record” 147 seperate objections have been lodged against Mark Kelleher’s 92-unit residential development near Westend in Bishopstown (That’s 2940 euros worth of objection). It’s pretty excessive – undoubtedly my friends at CAHRA were out there rallying support. But whatever about lodging objections based on reasonable argument – objection because of high-rise factors??? People, it has 4 floors (5 storeys). Mr. Kelleher hasn’t exactly had a healthy relationship when its come to gaining planning grants – so it will be really interesting to see how this one turns out.
mickeydocs – as regards Ryanair, pure and simple – they’re playing hard to get. The don’t want to pay the fees! But my inkling is that Ryanair aren’t really suped up with plans for Cork (yet) even if fees were lowerd.
