    lex and others

    re the georges mills development, clydagh developments are doing it but Murray O’ Laoire are the architects. Any chance of getting a photo / artists impression of what it will look like when finished? Due for completion of work in Sep 05.

    any know what the development currently being built on copley street will be? i assume its apartments but will there be mixed development i.e. retail as well? I see M&K Corbett in the planning lists to change Stable Lane next to Copley street to mixed development, is it all linked in?

    and whats the story with the Brooks Haughton site. Is that whole site up for sale due to their recent merging with the English building company?

    Eglinton street delayed? late objections accepted? very poor. back to the cork dark ages so with egos as high as the suggested 17 storey tower and a slap down to developers who obviously rub some people up the wrong way. This country would drive you to drink (if it wasnt so expensive). Come on lex, cheer us up with news of other new developments in cork, Eglinton street will have us waiting a while yet by the sounds of it.

    I live in Douglas and don’t have any objections in principle to the development. If anywhere in Douglas is suitable for development of taller buildings, it’s this site. It doesn’t overlook any houses and is central to the commercial district of Douglas.

    The traffic congestion problem in Douglas is almost entirely down to lack of coordination between the city and county councils. All that is needed is all the roundabouts replaced with linked traffic lights and a clampdown on illegal parking and the traffic flows can be handled.

    The roundabout seems to be gone in the Douglas Shopping Centre image. Hopefully, this is a good sign.

    hey JUNGLE, I live in douglas too and have no objection myself, place could do with a jolt, only hope that the roads are dragged along with it. Clayton love indeed seems to be the guy for this and sure why not have a skywalk altogether and link from his existing shopping centre over to the other side? Cinema was being threatened anyway with mahon point so they might head off. i suspect that it would be brought up to the flyover level but thats hardly 8 storeys is it?

    8 storey building in douglas? not a hope. I live further up but I know the residents the douglas have been objecting to nightclub licences etc for years . There is NO way the roads could take the traffic, it cannot cope as it is, especially given the fact that they pulled up all the road in grange and the hill going up from the village, only to replace it with???? exactly the same thing. 2 million that idiocy cost apparently. 8 storeys is a bit much in fairness.

    its getting more mental, Declan O Mahony of Brideview has paid €2m for an acre site in Carrigaline. If this keeps up, what kind of prices will all the centre park road and the docklands developments tipped for next year fetch?

    by the way, what was the info on that tiny site over by the bus station? i was away for the last while and someone tells me that 3000 sq ft went for some exorbitant sum of money? presumably the buyer is building something on it to recoup his money, whats the story? :confused:

    just back from berlin, 5 storeys sure aint high rise!! i thought the whole 3-4 storey tall thin apartment buildings were great, and while there is still derelict buildings in the East of Berlin, still looks better than rows and rows of housing estates!! anyway, the bright side is that at least now we have some designs to argue about, not too long ago, Cork wasnt getting hardly new developments. Roll on O flynns tall towers (no rumour on that yet, sounds like it didnt get blessing!!) and the docklands.

    any thoughts (ideas / speculation) as to who the developer is that is looking to buy Douglas Golf Club and put houses on it? There was rumours of a land swap deal for a course in Carrs Hill as well. any thoughts?

    Hi all
    have been watching this site from afar for a while and am stunned at the amount of info available on Cork, please keep it up and especially Lex the Champion! Saw in a previous thread that someone called Douglas an architectural wasteland and they’d be dead right. For such a big suburb and all the changes to the ‘village’ we now have unbelievable poor traffic (they had all summer and starting rebuilding the ‘green route; the week after the schools came back – CLEVER!!)and rows and rows of houses. Enough of those lamentations, Cork will be amazing in short time, grand parade and kenny group devt, Examiner offices new retail, over by the Capitol retail as well. Could seriously do with a few proper night clubs and big entertainment venues. All we need to do now is do up the South Mall. (slightly dubious also about Pana getting ‘best shopping street’!!!!) – anyone got an opinion on Centre park road and all that area? are there plans afoot or is it anticipated that the riverside will be done first and then a natural move in ?
