Re: Kenny Group South Main Street Development
Yes I am ashamed to admit it, but here is a poorly scanned image of the Kenny Group’s development on South Main Street I know it’s not the best, but at least it gives some perspective. The development under the existing grant (by ABP) is for a 7-storey, 22-bedroom hotel, 38 apartments, 141 multi-storey carpark, superpub, retail centre, offices, restaurants, cafes and boardwalk. Paul Kenny has run this development through planning in various incarnations – the most recent being for extra S50 apartments – an application which was subsequently withdrawn. At the moment, both the Kenny Group and PRC inform me that their project is undergoing revisions and due to for reapplication with CCC come early 2005. A few changes will be made to the project – but its general height and design will remain.
This image is taken from a South Main Street Bridge persepctive looking back down at South Main Street. The rear of Frinailla’s Grand Parade Plaza development can be seen behind the Kenny Group building. The Kenny development fronts out onto Grand Parade via an incorporated protected structure at 50 Grand Parade. The existing site is being used as a surface car-park. The whole street will look substantially rejuvenated with these 2 new developments in tow. Frinailla, who have made a number of substantial finds through excavation on there GP Plaza site, have earmarked late December, early Janurary as desirable construction start dates.
