New shopping centre planned for Annacotty
Exclusive by John Oâ€™Shaughnessy
A MULTI-million euro shopping centre and retail park, with provision for over 600 car park spaces, is earmarked for Annacotty, and in the words of one Limerick auctioneer, could, if permission is granted, “completely transform the areaâ€.
Glenabbey Property Limited has applied to Limerick County Council for permission to develop their site at Walkers Road, Annacotty, on the corner of the Dublin Road roundabout and which leads into Castletroy College.
The land in question is also within 100 yards of the newly built Newtown Shopping Centre.
The site is principally bound by the N7 to the north; Walkers Road to the south; a new link road to the west connecting the Annacotty roundabout to Walkers Road; and by detached residential dwellings to the east.
The proposed development will consist of the provision of a two storey/part three storey (i.e, including mezzanine level) building with a gross floor space of 11,290 sq m comprising internally ground floor level (travelator lobby.atrium) and partially enclosed car parking for 381 cars;first floor.store level of 9,717 sq m (net retail floor space of 5,309 sq m convenience floorspace and comparison floorspace of 2,848 sq m, including licensed sales area and comparison floorspace of 2,461 sq m; bulk storage 2,194 sq m, enclosed service yard and loading dock, 1,775 sq.m.
Also sought is the provision of one new pedestrian and vehicular access point, including alterations to the roundabout to the south west of the site from a four-arm 320 metre ICD roundabout to a five-arm 46 metre ICD roundabout, changes in level and all other associated site excavation and site development works.
The Castletroy/Annacotty side of town has seen major changes over the last decade, with a population now in excess of 20,000.
