The start of a new Limerick Skyline -Clancy Strand-

14/06/2006

Permission is sought for the demolition of Strandville, Roseville and Curragour House, ancillary sheds and structures, at Clancy Strand, Limerick and permission to construct 49 no. apartments (14-3 bed, 34-2 bed and 1-1 bed) in a five storey building with 1.5 floors of basement carparking, site entrance, drainage, landscaping and ancillary works

Eileen McNamara Architects

These apartments would command a spectacular view of the river Shannon with the Kings island in the background. This location is second to none in Limerick and if the developer gets the design right it will probably kick start more developments towards the treaty stone.

I trust the city hall has a coherent skyline plan for Clancy Strand.

The first image is of Clancy Strand from King John’s Castle. The planning site is for the last 3 houses on the left?

The second image is of King John’s Castle taken from the from the Clancy Strand side of the river. Nice views for the apartments.

The third image is a zoomed view of Shannon rowing club with a cluttered high rise background. Taken from John’s Castle. The green office block has since been demolished and will be replaced by an even higher building.
