Re: Re: Developments in Cork
I’ve just heard that O’Callaghans have bought the Bodega. It’s meant to be closing next weekend!A great venue for Cork gone! Although who knows what’s in store for the site! Maybe he’s going to try and buy up that side of the Coal Quay for development seeing as the other side is going to be retail!
Pity he did’nt buy the Coal Quay Bar instead ! Pub business is dying with all the pub sales but the Bodega is a gem.
I’d say there woul be at least 8,000 sq.ft + first floor for retail there.Instore and H&M were being mentioned in the paper this morning.Habitat would be great but they would need about 20,000 sq.ft.and are possibly going into the O.C.P. scheme on Half Moon St which will have 4 large 20,000,sq.ft units ?
That giant furniture warehouse next door must be next to go as it is huge and links to North Main St.?
