Might be a good oppurtunity to put a starbucks in there seeing as there are no others in the city.
Sure you’re not counting the scaffolding rather than the actual floors? :p
NOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Matty Kielys is now gone 😮 Sad day for cork
Anyone know whats going up next to Halfords in Mahon Point? (To the left by the way, To the right is a vacant store – anyone know whats happening with that actually too?) They started work a few days ago, Maybe we could see Argos or TK Maxx coming to MP soon?
I’ve been to pizza hut about 5 times since it opened, Everytime has been busy except a wednesday afternoon when I went for lunch. Can’t see them closing anytime soon
Halford, PC World and Currys (I think) are all opening after November 10th in Mahon Point Retail Park 🙂
Also heard rumours about Pennys occupying the space. That would be terrible… If they were to leave, we would need something much bigger than Dunnes or Pennys, John Lewis or Arnotts maybe…
Todayâ€™s Irish Examiner carries a story about the possibility of the Mercy and South Infirmary/ Victoria hospitals relocating to another site freeing up their present locations for other uses.
Any ideas on what would be developed on these sites?
What developer is involved in the land swap/relocation deal?
Would the Mercy site suit UCC for campus expansion?
As far as I know they may be looking at a site in Glanmire for the new hospital. I think the present locations are vital but if they feel they could set up another CUH type hospital then I suppose it could work.
I read that the Douglas Esso was suppose to remain as a petrol station but I’ve heard different from a couple of people. It may even just include a bit of site reorganisation with commercial elements, and maybe still a petrol station, complimenting a larger development which would have residential parts to it too.
Dunno about PC world or Currys but they are suppose to be going there sometime. and as far as I know Little island is being built by the O’Flynns. They say they have tenants lined up i think.
cheers for that 😮 😮
I hear reports today that the new terminal building at Cork Airport will not open until “early June”.
I wonder what the delay is? Could it be due to unions throwing their weight around or are the shops/restaurants not going to be ready for May as planned?
Today’s Irish Times reports:
Statement of Cork Airport Authority last night: “due to delays in the construction programme, access to the terminal for testing and training would not be possible until May 8th.” Hence opening of terminal for operational purposes not before early June. “As the terminal completion dates become more definitive, an operational date will be advised.”
“Informed sources have told The Irish Times that the authority is pushing to have the building opened before the end of June, as trying to train and transfer staff in July and August would be extremely difficult.”
So basically the training that should have and nearly could have been done in the last month was put off…. Only in Ireland
Hey, Just wondering is there any news on what’s happening with the Esso site on the Douglas road. It has been sitting there since before christmas without much work at all. Is it going to stay a petrol station or car garage or will it be changed into something residential. Hopefully not, it’s a prime location for a petrol station and did absolutely huge business!
Also, Any news on Pc World and Currys coming to Mahon Point. And what’s happening with the new industrial type place built by Pizza Hut and KFC in Little Island.
