Opera Centre on song for 2010 (Limerick Post)
by Marie Hobbins
WORK on the multi million euro Opera Retail Development is likely to commence within six to eight weeks, according to the cityâ€™s senior planner, Dick Tobin.
He said that while documents of compliance had been lodged with City Hall by the developers, the planning department has not yet finished its consideration of the detail.
Asked by the Limerick Post if there were any problematic areas that could impede progress, Mr Tobin said the developers are in compliance with conditions required by an Bord Pleanala.
“There were a few things that hadnâ€™t been completed, mainly to do with some protected buildings – documentation and photographic records etcâ€.
Asked if there was any concern that given the downturn in the economy, the Opera Centre, predicted to produce a retail development that will completely transform and upgrade the city centre and produce stiff competition to the suburban retail parks, could be jeopardised, Mr Tobin replied: “We donâ€™t get any sense of this – it is scheduled to open in 2010â€.
Very inspiring image of Bank Place below? 🙁
A standalone three storey cafÃ© bar/restaurant building is proposed at Bank Place, facing a new landscaped plaza with vehicular access to basement service area from Bank Place.
Any decent images about? In my opinion a very poor PR on behalf of the new and former developer for promoting this city shopping centre.
