Re: Re: Developments in Cork
The developer has decided not to demolish Lovett’s but to convert the building into apartments.
The longterm property market looks risky for all developers at the moment as alot of apartment developments are proving difficult to sell – nervous investors – and converted apartments can be brought to the market far more quickly.
The planning application to CCC still seeks the demolition of Lovettâ€™s restaurant, but a notice in the Irish Examiner today (22-11-06) lists Lovettâ€™s as a possible addition to the list of protected buildings in Cork.
Well done to the Councillors of the area. NIMBYâ€™s are alive and well, and living in Douglas.
