Seen as a huge portion of Limerick city centre has been destroyed over the last 40 years, its probably a minor miracle that so much of the Georgian buildings around the Crescent and the upper part of O Connell street are still standing! Such a pity that lower O Connell wasnâ€™t safeguarded to the same extent.
There is an application before the city council at the moment which proposes a â€œlightweight structureâ€ on the roof of the former Limerick County Council offices â€œto provide separated additional office accommodation over No’s 80, 81 and 82 O’Connell Street and to provide an apartment over No.’s 83 and 84 O’Connell Street.â€ I presume this will be similar to the structure on top of Oâ€™Gorman solicitors in CologneMikes post, (who by the way have done an excellent job refurbishing their premises!) There has definitely been an increase in the number of Georgian buildings undergoing refurbishment lately, lets hope this continues as there are plenty in a bad way around the city!
Speaking of Limerick County Council , I see they are due a â‚¬5 Â½ million windfall in development contributions for the Parkes Properties development adjacent to the Parkway retail park. Limerick City Council on the other hand have only been awarded â‚¬1,000 as the only part of the development that falls within its admin area isâ€¦ a mast sign, ouch! 😮
