LIMERICK OPERA CENTRE GETS GREEN LIGHT (live95fm)
An Bord Pleanala have approved planning for the â‚¬350 million Limerick Opera Centre.
The seven hundred and fifty thousand square foot development is the largest ever planned for the city and will include a retail and restaurant complex as well as three floors of underground car parking.
Marks and Spencers are reportedly interested in becoming tenants in the new building which will take around 3 years to complete.
Up to 500 jobs could be created in the construction phase and 1,000 fulltime jobs after it is completed.
Welcoming An Bord Pleanala’s decision to grant planning permission, the Project Manager of Regeneration Developments Limited, Pat Keogh, says they can now enter into talks with potential retailers.
MAYOR CALLS FOR WORK ON LIMERICK OPERA CENTRE TO BEGIN QUICKLY (live95fm)
The Mayor of Limerick is urging the developers behind Limerick’s â‚¬350 million Opera Centre to start work on the project as soon as possible.
An Bord Pleanala have granted planning permission for the much anticipated retail centre which is expected to draw shoppers back into the city.
The development will also provide a jobs boost for the city with around 500 people expected to be employed during the construction phase and a further 1,000 jobs will be created on it’s completion.
Regeneration Developments Limited say they will be reviewing a number of conditions attached to the planning permission and are not at this stage ready to provide a date for the beginning of construction which will take about 3 years to complete.
Mayor of Limerick Councillor Kevin Kiely says the Opera Centre – which will be the largest retail centre in the Mid West – is crucial for the future of the city.
Mayor Kiely says the issue of a Opera Centre has been ongoing for three years and the awarding of planning permission is great news for Limerick.
