OCP dont own the Cornmarket St Development – the O Donoghue Ring family own it.

I’d say OCP have plans to acquire the dogs home site as they have bought the Reliance bearing site last year.

O’Callaghan targets CSPCA building near Cork bus station
Sunday, March 26, 2006 – By Neil Callanan
Cork developer Owen O’Callaghan is in talks to acquire the Cork Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals building on Clontarf Street in Cork. O’Callaghan confirmed last week that he is trying to buy the building as part of a site assembly of properties in the area with the intention of developing a 9,290 square metre plus office block.

The first part of the acquisition involved the purchase of the Reliance Bearings site on Anderson’s Quay and O’Callaghan is also in talks to acquire two other properties there.

The site is at the edge of the city’s docklands area, which is set for a major regeneration, and is opposite the bus station.

It is also close to the Merchant’s Quay shopping centre, which was developed by O’Callaghan. ‘‘We have a site where we could relocate the animals’ home subject to us coming to an agreement to acquire the site,” O’Callaghan said.
