Re: Re: Academy Street Development
O’Callaghan Properties are set to submit further information and revised plans for its much anticipated development at Academy Street/St.Patrick’s Street and Emmett Place.
A number of important/protected/listed buildings are within this development area. These include, the St. Patrick Street frontages, Parts of the Examiner Office, Le Chateau and buildings on Emmett Place.
The original development was designed to provide a mixed use, residential/commercial floor area of 33388 sq m, providing 19 large ‘comparison goods’ retail units and 91 apartments (17 x one bed]
Are there no height limitations to developments in Cork City center? These things are just awful and engulf the whole street and detract totally from both Patrick’s Street and the lovely little house on Emmeth Place. Can we depend on Cork Corporation to turn this monstrosity down?
