It looks as though the Raheen White Elephant, AKA Landmark offices will get their tennant. Spin Southwest have been awarded the broadcasting licence for the Southwest region and their application stated that they would use the building should they be awarded the licence.
Difficult Office and Hotel trading conditions at the Raheen Roundabout?
This office block must be four years old by now and you mean it has been a â€œWhite Elephantâ€ since it was built? On the other side of the roundabout is Lynchâ€™s South Court Hotel again a relatively new complex but correct me if Iâ€™m wrong but is there talk of them moving their hotel business to the renovated Royal George in the city centre? Are we now starting to reach a saturation point of over supply of new office and hotel accomodation? Or the switch from the old N20 primary road to the new N20 Dual-carraigeway has isolated both? Or have they both simply located too far away from the city centre core. It would be in my opinion far more beneficial for the city if our three local Authorities would encourage office developments to locate in the city centre where they belong. Just as much as important that factories are located outside the city centre core in designated industrial estates. I think the placing of the new â€œSpin Southwest â€œ radio station at the entrance of an industrial estate would be a lost opportunity to develop a modest media concentration in the city centre (Live95FM, LyricFM, local RTE studio, Limerick Leader and Post newspapers).
