Can’t name sources sw101 – but it was confirmed by Cork County Council Planning Department & The Hyde Partnership also. This is a project I am very interested in, but I have only seen drawings dated October 2004 (the month in which I was informed of the project). I know RORSA have involvement – I can’t remember the ‘interesting’ design element on the site of the existing TSB you noted, but I haven’t paid as much attention to this project since it has been lodged. I should really, and will be getting ahold of the application’s attached V.I.S. soon to review it. If you have any information otherwise, please share it – like I said, I haven’t been on top of this development as much as others and totally welcome and seek any up-to-date accurate info you can provide. 🙂
Another hotel proposal I am very interested in is the 6-storey, 93-bedroom hotel w/ conference facilities designed (?) by Tom Phillips & Assoc. (Lower Baggot Street, Dublin) and to be developed by John Sisk & Sons Ltd. on a Kinsale Road site just south of their Cork HQ. I’ll look into getting images up on this one. Planning is due on the 19th Feb 2005.
– further along the N25, Heiton Holdings PLC have sought planning for a 96-bedroom hotel, 4-storeys with conference centre, leisure centre and multi-storey car-park on their Bandon Road Roundabout/Ballincollig By-Pass interchange. Design is by Ashlin Colman Architects. A decision due date is set for 25/02/2005.
