Re: Re: Developments in Cork
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.
Oâ€™Callaghan targets CSPCA building near Cork bus station
Sunday, March 26, 2006 – By Neil Callanan
Cork developer Owen Oâ€™Callaghan is in talks to acquire the Cork Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals building on Clontarf Street in Cork. Oâ€™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 Andersonâ€™s Quay and Oâ€™Callaghan is also in talks to acquire two other properties there.
The site is at the edge of the cityâ€™s docklands area, which is set for a major regeneration, and is opposite the bus station.
It is also close to the Merchantâ€™s Quay shopping centre, which was developed by Oâ€™Callaghan. â€˜â€˜We have a site where we could relocate the animalsâ€™ home subject to us coming to an agreement to acquire the site,â€ Oâ€™Callaghan said.
