Floor Area: 30,000m²





Integration of the commercial and civic elements into a single project provides a unique opportunity to regenerate this area of the city centre and act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the broader urban context.

The project is located in the historical core of Cork city and integrates a protected structure and a number of buildings of historical national significance into the overall design. Complex archaeological issues on the site were also resolved during the design development phase.

In excess of 9,000m² of commercial retail space is proposed over two levels including mezzanine to help in establishing new street frontages on Grand Parade and South Main Street and re-energising existing historic lanes linking Grand Parade & South Main Street.
