This has been on the cards for a good while now although I didnt think an application was this imminent! The Parkway will be no loss in truth, dunnes stores has been the only thing keeping it going these last couple of years, the land its sitting on is worth far more than the business currently being carried out there.
It does seem like madness to be planning another “luxury” hotel with the new park point hotel and the Castletroy park literally a couple of hundred metres down the road. Although theres nothing to stop them scrapping the hotel plans in favour of more apartments later on in the process. Its interesting that the developers are proposing to keep a retail element on this site, especially with the proliferation of retail parks etc already in the area and of course the new pakway valley complex now well underway just across the road.
All the hype surrounding these new developments cant mask the real issue here though! Just how is all the extra traffic going to be accomodated? The area is already a disaster now, whats it going to be like when all these new shopping complexes and apartments are up and running? Unfortunately as per usual these issues will only become a concern to the City planners when its too late, will we ever learn?:(
