Re: South Main Street City Properties Ltd Development
Anyone who has been walking around the North Main Street/Paradise Place/Liberty Street area will have notice Ridge Developments working away on reconstructing the facade of what was once the rear of the former Queen’s Old Castle (now Virgin Megastore and Argos). The property is still owned by City Properties Ltd – who have decided to utilise the available space to the rear and redevelop it as a new restaurant house, in addition to extending the existing ‘Classic Bar’ premises and constructing a new nightclub overhead. The new restaurant house (at the junction of North Main Street, Liberty Street and South Main Street) will be anchored by Captain Americas (of Grafton Street fame) and international noodle-house Wagamama (as previously reported way back on this thread). The bar and nightclub extensions will commence later this year – in the meantime, here’s what the restaurant house will look like come completion. The restaurants, who are currently recruiting, are expected to be open late-Feb/early March. Dan Mulvihill acted as consulting engineer on the project.
