Butler to go head-to-head with new shopping centre
By John Oâ€™Shaughnessy
ROBERT Butler, always one with an eye for a site with potential, is planning to go head-to-head with the new shopping development currently underway at Clondrinagh, alongside the Coonagh roundabout.
Mr Butler, who, inside the last two years, purchased the former Texaco station close to Elm Motors, and a landbank across the road, and practically adjoining the new shopping centre, has now applied to Limerick County Council to develop a retail park, at Clondrinagh.
The development will consist of 12 retail units and a stand alone restaurant with drive through facility (maximum building height 13.9 metres over finished floor level), an external enclosed garden centre area, roof mounted signage structures (height 9.0 metres over roof level), individual unit signage, associated car and bicycle parking, service yard, waster compound, ESB substation and switchroom, an access road linking to the N18, landscaping and ancillary works to facilitate the development.
The overall gross floor area is 1,300 sq m, on a site area of 5.0763 Hectares.
Said one long-time Coonagh resident; “There was a time when we had very few facilities in the area. All that is about to change, especially with the opening of the shopping complex, where the anchor tenant is to be Tesco. We are also going to have cinemas…Coonagh is no longer way out in the country…it is about to become a town in itselfâ€.
Meanwhile, hundreds of new homes are in the pipeline in the Clonmacken, just a short distance away from Clondrinagh.
