Re: Re: Developments in Cork
was going through the planning apps and found this one, don’t think it has been mentioned:
File Number: 09/33647
for the demolition of all buildings on a 0.266 hectare site at the junction of Carrigrohane Road and Victoria Cross Road, Cork, including the former Crow’s Nest public house and restaurant, four no. two-storey habitable dwellings at 1-4 Victoria Terrace, shed structures, store building and yard, and permission to construct a new mixed use student accomodation and commercial development in two main blocks, with a laundry room and commons room located in a separate single storey building at ground level, a new vehicular access from Carrigrohane Road to basement level, and all associated ancillary development, site works and services. Block A, which will range in height from 3 to 9 stories above basement level, will contain a total of 27 no. student apartments, 1 no. pub/restaurant unit, 1 no. retail unit, a waiting reception area and warden’s apartment for the student accomodation, and ancillary development including ESB substation and switchroom. Block B, which will rise to a height of 7 stories above basement level,will contain 41 no. student apartments and associated ancillary development. The basement level shall contain 54 no. car parking spaces, 2 no. bicycle racks, a refuse area, storage areas for the pub/restaurant ( including 1 no. cold storage unit), customer toilets and staff changing facilities for the pub/restaurant, and ancillary development including plant rooms and lift access to upper levels. Ancillary development at ground level will include a communal terrace within which the building containing the commons room and laundry room will be located, along with a separate lift access to the basement level.
It would be nice to see that site developed soon, the crow’s nest is becoming a bit of an eyesore…….student accommodation makes the most sense in the current market
just had a look at the elevations and it looks very bland
