Re: Re: Developments in Cork
Christian Brothers School on Sullivan’s Quay is for sale. It closed last year.
Should be prime redevelopment site, although it’s unlikely planners will allow the demolition of the buildings on site.
Good location next to South Gate Bridge and across the river from some massive redevelopment sites at the Central Library and the “Citi-Park”.
A report on the potential merger of two Cork City hospitals is due within the next two weeks. Mercy and South Infirmary hospitals are considering merging on a new “greenfield” site to allow development of both hospitals and to free up their valuable City Centre sites. Greenfield sites at Blarney and Sarsfield Court are being mentioned, as well as a “brownfield” site at the docklands. One has to wonder about the value of a hospital which is remote from the bulk of population.
Sullivans Quay is quite a large site going right back to Cove St.What is happening with the city car park site which has been dormant for the past 2+ years.
What is the point of the Mercy moving after spending a fortune on it ? Would the existing newer facility end up as a private clinic ?
Anyone taking bets that the Elysian tower will be complete before Cornmarket St.Shopping Centre ?
