I am beginning to wonder if Leo is playing politics here with Simon's seat.

This Event Centre and Dunkettle crap could cost Simon his seat next time around.

Wouldn't agree with you but everyone has their opinion. Just wondering what type of skyscraper design would you recommend for this site? Or what type in general do you like from other cities?

The Customs house is the oldest of its kind in the world.
This development will destroy it.

It should never get planning.

The customs house itself is proposed to be restored and the bonded warehouses are going to be restored for public/cultural use and the tower will be on the North side of the customs house. there in no other business case to get these great buildings back into use as the city/govt. do not want them and cannot afford them anyway and that is a positive opening up the currently closed area to the city.

It shows some serious ambition but is going to be one serious planning battle.

It will absolutely destroy it. There is zero attempt to preserve old architecture in this city.


You are in favour of every new development. Thats fair enough. I hope it is refused planning

Make your observation then during the planning process. Cork has to be even more ambitious than Dublins 6/7 storey boring quayside developments to attract business to the 2nd city.

Currently those buildings are crumbling and there is little or no public access and with architectural conservation on the customs house building and bonded warehouses they will not be permitted to "destroy" anything.


The whole North & South Docks are finally taking off with modern developments planned it will be unrecognisable in the next 10 - 15 years.


You cannot do this stuff West of the city as it is largely a housing urban sprawl apart from Victoria Cross which is hideous student apts and the county hall.

The Docklands is a blank canvass space suitable for this as the NIMBY "It will spoil my view of Shandon" will nit be an issue and walking distance to the city centre and a boost to the central core with workers and people living there etc contributing funds and rates to actually improve the city itself. Cork is also competing with other cities for FDI that have these modern spaces available. Dublin is running out of fresh water and its sewage capacity is at peak use.


It will have to make a planning and business case before a block is even laid.

Lol, like they've conserved other projects?

Listen no need to get pissy again. We disagree on this.
I don't see it getting planning either way.
