🙂 Property-owner J. Daly has applied for the development of 16 apartments over retail area at 96 – 98 Lower Glanmire Road – adjacent to Kent Station. The proposal represents one of many recent development proposals for this area – predominantly apartment schemes. Another prominent development being that proposed by the Kilbree Investment Company, which is currently in appeal for a 4-storey, 22-unit apartment development over ground-floor car-parking.
🙁 Paul Montgomery, developer behind Victoria Mills Student Accommodation and owner of the Reardens complex on Washington Street, has sought permission to operate the large, 9-storey student development on a short-term letting basis outside the academic year and beyond holiday accommodation. If you know, I’ll say no more. 😉
🙂 Kilquane Ltd (Howard Holdings) have been greenlit for the installation of a glass lift from Lapps Quay into the basement car-park and provision of the mooring pontoon leading off the 2.5m (width) boardwalk alongside it’s new City Quarter development. The 12.6m scultpture recently permitted is due to be erected within the coming 2 and half weeks.
🙂 The Country Club Inn in Montenotte and Imperial Hotel on South Mall have also been greenlit for substantial expansion and redevelopments.
😮 I’m told the decision on the important Eglinton Street development by O’Flynn Construction may possibly be released tomorrow, 1 day ahead of schedule – this is just an internal word of mouth. However, planners may yet hang on until the set date and I wouldn’t be surprised if they do. I won’t get too expectant just yet. MAJOR FINGERS CROSSED!
