    OCP dont own the Cornmarket St Development – the O Donoghue Ring family own it.

    I’d say OCP have plans to acquire the dogs home site as they have bought the Reliance bearing site last year.

    I dont know why they didnt delay the opening of the new terminal until it was ready for both departures and arrivals.

    Flew in from Barcelona Thursday night, there werent enough trolleys, the baggage took over half an hour to come up. There is only 1 extra baggage carousel and one for oversized bags. Give me the old terminal anyday.

    that penneys rumour has been going around since MP opened. Debenhams will be in Mahon for another while yet as they have invested so much in the fitout of their store.

    When debenhams do open in the city centre it will allow more people to see the range of goods they do offer. A lot of people are put off by the designers at Debenhams advertising campaign and think the goods will be pricey but thay also have their own label goods which are not too pricey. they may then make the trip down to MP. Some Cork ppl are set in their ways and will not go shopping anywhere else other than the city centre

    you made the point about the sugar factory

    it’s high priority if you’re living in the area. The closure of the sugar factory has made no difference to the traffic.

    Twenty minutes is a long time to drive just half a mile!

    obviously Aidan has never driven up through mayfield down through ballyvolane to get onto the Blackpool bypass. The amount of trucks using that route coming from the tunnel, and serving the docks is too much for the existing road network as well as all the cars coming from the tunnel, Then the City Council wanted to locate a park and ride at one of the busiest junctions in Mayfield. Thankfully that was put to bed

    They need to provide a better road network from the Mallow Rd to the Dunkettle Interchange.

    we could do with the likes of jim mansfield down in cork, there are no major concert venues down here. There is a lot of talk (the last 5 years) but no action as of yet!! I know he hasnt done everything by the book but neither have a lot of other developers.

    Architecturally his proposed convention centre would have blended in with the existing hotel and leisure complex on the site, No building looks well during the construction stage, all steelwork is ugly but you have to make sure the building will not fall down

    That sweet shop was called Cudmores.

    I thought this thread was about Cork Architecture & development, not about using the correct spelling or punctuation!

    They are 2 separate companies.

    The one in Maylor Street should attract a lot of interest as it has an entrance onto Oliver Plunkett Street.

    The Retail showrooms and offices are to the rear of the Sifco Site. The Car Showrooms are still going ahead at the front of the site.
