Re: Re: Thick as theives – CCC!
😡 CCC, who at their meeting last night (Monday 14th March 2005), were set to vote on allowing Howard WebWorks Ltd (a company owned by Howard Holdings) possess the Albert Quay site on a 700 year lease from the City Council to develop a 4-storey WebWorks development designed by STW, have voted against such a permission being granted. Hmmm – because they’re thick? Probably, but they claim that a number of councillors are worried about passing over a public building such as Albert House over to a private developer. Yes, they are thick. By a margin of just 2 votes, the motion failed to pass. Joe Gavin is said to be majorly pi**ed off – and who could blame him. The centre would have been the first of its kind – and was designed in conjunction with CCC. Enterprise Ireland have already begun marketing the project, which they will lease from, to provide start-up businesses with an incubation style setting. Issues concerning the project will be deferred to the next meeting were it is hoped another meeting will take place.
Well done you tw*ts!
Lexington, what is the present use of the site you are referring to?
