An Bord Pleanála have granted planning permission for what will be Ireland’s tallest building in Cork City. An appeal was made to the approval given by Cork City Council in October of last year. After considering the appeal, An Bord Pleanála’s final verdict was positive, subject to 23 conditions.
The €140m project will be located on the old Port of Cork site and will comprise a “34-storey hotel tower, 25 serviced suites, and a range of commercial uses including retail, office, food and beverage, distillery, tourism and leisure.” Part of the Revenue Building, a protected structure, will be maintained.
The conditions include giving responsibility for managing, monitoring and implementing works on the site to a conservation third party. Detailed plans for traffic and waste management during the construction phase will have to be submitted. A detailed log of historical features will also have to be administered.
A date of commencement hasn’t as yet been announced.
