🙂 Though I had heard the rumours (which you may remember I posted some time ago), I finally received word from a member of the Deloitte & Touche organisation, confirming that the company was actively looking into vertically extending their historical premises on Lapps Quay (between Connolly Hall and No.5 Lapps Quay). These premises are listed structures. I have been asked not to post the name of the Cork-based architectural firm behind the design – but was told by D&T, if they decide to proceed with their plans – and after further CCC talks, intend to lodge an application for the development mid to late 2005 (design pending). The project should bring the firm increased, high-standard office space and afford a greater sense of uniformity along these rapidly developing quays.

😎 PJ Walls today took down their final tower crane remaining on-site at Brookfield – construction has been on-going for over a year on UCC’s new 50m euro Medical & Nursing Centre (designed by RKD McCarthy Lynch). Remaining construction and fit-outs will continue on until summer 2005 – with the centre scheduled to be taking its first students for October 2005.
😀 Ridge Developments Ltd are finishing up construction work on Philisview Properties No.16 Washington Street West development. The small 9x 2-bedroom apartment and ground-floor commercial development was designed by CMG Architects and overlooks a pleasant wier facing Sharman Crawford Quay and Bridge. With the scaffolding down now – all I can say is, she’s a looker!
