Re: More Student Accommodation planned
😮 Yes, more student accomodation for UCC and CIT, this time – I have to agree the location is pretty sweet as it is slap-bang in the middle between both the main UCC and CIT campuses.
The former petrol station, repair shop and existing licensed bar at Dennehy’s Cross on the junction of the Model Farm Road and Wilton Road looks scheduled to be redeveloped as student accomodation (in the form of apartments). It is presumed the buildings will range from 3 to 5 storeys and accomodate up to 200 to 250 bedspaces. The apartments are expected to be designed and built to a very high standard – perhaps due to future market considerations??? After all, it won’t have the same restrictions. No firm application date has yet been set – and I’m afraid I can’t leech any further information about the development for now. But this, it would seem, is what is in the works for this highly prominent and sought after site.
