Alocin Limited have lodged another application for modifications to their plans for the Parkway valley complex on the Dublin road, the stand out feature is an increase in the size of the ice rink to accomodate an olympic size facility!:eek:
Description: amendments/modifications to development permitted under ref. no. 04/3700 and amended by ref. no. 06/3211, ref. 06/4103 and ref. 07/1024 for the construction of mixed use retail/commercial and leisure development incorporating public park on the site. The proposed development involves revisions to the previously permitted development arising mainly from (a) enlargements/revisions to the ice rink to accommodate Olympic size facility (b) incorporation of additional leisure elements and food hall adjacent to ice rink facility in place of health, lifestyle and well-being centre (c) reconfiguration of layout on all levels to address specific retail tenant requirements and (d) revisions to ancillary/circulation areas and stair/lift cores, plant areas associated with the above as well as incorporation of fire escape requirements (e) increase in car parking provision from 1788 spaces to 2169 spaces. The changes involve an increase in the overall gross floor area of the development from 73,142sq.m. to 83,068sq.m. generally within the same building envelope. Design changes are also proposed to all elevations of the building from the previously permitted scheme as well as revisions to finishes and materials accociated with the above changes to the scheme and general design development. Changes are also proposed to external landscaping and pedestrian circulation areas.
Ice rink, public park, bowling lanes and shops galore…

THE Parkway Valley Retail Park, currently under construction, is turning into something really exciting.
This promises to be more than just another shopping centre, if revised plans submitted to Limerick County Council are given the green light, and first reported in our issue of last week.
The overall gross floor area is to be a massive 83,068 sq m., and is to include the countryâ€™s first Olympic size ice rink, 10-12 bowling lanes, multi-media entertainment areas and public park.
Developers, Alocin Limited, have sought amendments/modifications to the development already permitted, for the construction of mixed use retail/commercial and leisure, incorporating public park on the 6.89 Ha site, at Singland, bounded by N7 to the north, Parkway Retail Park and Castletroy View to the west, Carn na Ree to the south and undeveloped lands stretching to the Groody River to the east.
There is to be provision for 2,169 car spaces, from the original 1,788.
The changes involve an increase in the overall gross floor area of the development from 73,142 sq m to 83,068 sq m generally within the same building envelope.
Also proposed are a creche, library, financial services, a number of anchor tenants, dozens of retail units, health lifestyle and well-being centre, food court area, roof deck car park, etc.
As already revealed in the Limerick Post, there is a major extension planned for the Parkway Shopping Centre, with further units across the road on the site of the former Dillons Garage.
