Re: Re: Tallest Building in Ireland?
There are of course a number of buildings proposed that are taller than both Liberty Hall and Cork County Hall, and here they are.
[HTML] Building Status Floors Height Type
1. The proposed Cherry Orchard Tower proposed 40 unknown residential
2. Heuston Gate approved 32 117.7m residential, bar/restaurant
3. That Barrow st. monstrosity proposed 32 unknown residential
4. Player’s Square Tower planning refused 28 86 m residential
(likely to re-apply)
5.City Quay Development proposed 28 unknown residential, bar/restuarant/niteclub
6. U2 Tower approved 25 78m office?residential? recording studio
(unlikely to go ahead as originally planned)
7. MJ Flood site, Sandyford proposed 23 unknown residential
8. Merchant’s Gate proposed 19 unknown office?
9.City Quay Development proposed 17 unknown office
10. The Park, Carrickmines approved 16 71m office, apart-hotel?
11. Monte Vetro under construction 18 unknown residential
12.Alto Vetro (formerly Quay Lodge) under construction 16 unknown residential
13. Santry Cross under construction 16 unknown residential
14. Tara st. Station approved 14?16? don’t know, office, restaurant
(Is it still going ahead?) but it was taller than Liberty Hall[/HTML]
For the record, Liberty Hall has 16 floors (including the top, maintenance floor) and is 59.4m tall. Can someone please tell me the height of Cork County Hall? I don’t know it off the top of my head.
Oops, I forgot to include the Eglington Street Tower and Water Street project proposed for Cork in the list above. The Eglington Street Tower will be 25 floors if it gets the go ahead, which I assume would be taller than County Hall. The tower element of Water Street would be a 17 floor residential which I imagine would be slightly shorter than C.C.H.
Feel free to offer your corrections to the above list. 🙂
Apologies for the extremely messy post, its late, i’m tired and I can’t figure out the damn list thing 😀
Under Construction or In Planning
Cork County Hall = 66m (67m after redevelopment) @ 16 storeys
Eglinton Street = 70m @ 17-storeys (80m including the spire)
Water Street = 58m @ 17-storeys
[There are 4 other significant high-rise buildings under consideration and/or pre-planning for Cork – 2 of which rise higher than both Eglinton Street and County Hall (I think their fate will have a lot to do with Eglinton and Water Street outcomes, which seem to have more problems with parking than height(!) ~ which in some ways is a relief!) The other 2 are planned for Clontarf Street and Blackpool respectively.]
