Re: Re: Developments in Cork
Lots of stuff being demolished.
Again, if people have renders or know details of what is going on please post.
Correct, a four storey hotel at on Beasly (??) street. Good design. Pity about the loss of some of the facade to Parnell Place.
Massive demolition and rebuild of the entire “Dunnes Block”. Academy Street was supposed to be done at the same time, however we’re stil waiting for the OK from ABP.
See my last post, one page back. OCP developing retail and office here. Just got green light form CCC, however expect appeal to ABp due to “protected” nature of adjacent Matthews centre.
Everything to be demolished here, except the facade of the pub next door. Pub to be rebuilt with new appartments. Should have spectacular views of College of Comm, Holy Trinity and School of Music on the river.
Grand Parade is flying along. Should be slightly ahead of schedule, just before Christmas. The Berwick fountain (Right) is being slowly rebuilt very slightly to the west of its original spot. Thank god they kept what is now the only working fountain on the city streets.
This is a big hole they’ve left. There will be another outside the Library and one more near the National Monument. Plan is to insert a Kiosk with special decking/paving at each site to sell coffee, newspapers etc. Cant say I agree with the idea. Will only serve to clutter the place up and make the new plaza areas less usefull in terms of holding outdoor events on the street. The first one should be in place outsie Bishop Lucey Park (pictured) by August.
See amendments to quote above. Well done on the images malec!
