Permission has been granted for the new Murray O Laoire designed retail and office development on a disused site at the top of Catherine Street. The application was lodged in early January, however the planning department requested further information in relation to the retention of the 2 proposed protected structures on the site (35 & 37Catherine Street) causing somewhat of a delay.
You would hope that this development would help stimulate the further rejuvenation of what is generally a fairly depressing and run down part of the city centre. The development site is located right in the heart of the Georgian city, much of which is currently plagued by neglected buildings, an extremely poor quality public realm and of course the scourge of overhead cables!:mad:
Construct six floors of commercial accommodation consisting of; offices, retail at street level, 3 levels of basement car parking 110 car parking spaces and associated site works in connection with the proposed development. This includes the demolition of numbers 34,35,36,37,38,39,40 & 41 Catherine Street along with the buildings to the rear of these properties including the former Limerick Leader facilities. The facades of 35, 36 & 37 (35 & 37 are proposed protected structures) will be retained and restored to their original state.
