I think the Jury's site has one more section available for development but it would still need to go for planning as the last planning was for a private hospital and then apartments before that but probably not at the density they would go for now.

They may have extended the planning permission for the apartments scheme but I would be surprised if they did not go for a new application for a higher density development unless they have a buyer/corporate client lined up to take the units? I could not be bothered to go on the City Councils planning inquiry system as it is poor enough.

They have the basement and foundations done so it would be a quick enough turnaround.

FUNDING for the long-awaited event centre is not currently being handled by the Department of Local Government, it has been confirmed.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar revealed last month that following talks between the Government, operators Live Nation, developers BAM, and Cork City Council, funding certainty had been reached and that the local authority was to receive funding for the project via the Department of Local Government.

The Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht had previously been in charge of funding for the project.

However, a Freedom of Information request by Labour representative Peter Horgan seeking all documentation received by the Department of Local Government relating to the funding requirements and processes has been refused on the basis that the Department of Culture is still the lead Government body for the project.

Mr Horgan said the funding channel for the project needs to be clarified.

“This is very concerning. The event centre is being used as a political football, which it really shouldn’t be. We still don’t have clarity on which department the money will be funnelled through,” he told The Echo.

“Now we have the Department of the Taoiseach, the Department of Culture, the Department of the Tánaiste and the Department of Housing and Local Government all involved in this.

“Surely Local Minister Eoghan Murphy needs to be informed of this large tranche of money that will be coming through his Department to the lcoal authority for a project.

“This is creating extra layers of bureaucracy when they don’t need to be. This has been talked about for nearly the full lifetime of the current Government.”

Tánaiste, Simon Coveney told the media in Cork last month that the centre will cost more than the €80m originally cited, but added the funding process that had led to legal issues regarding the tender had now been “simplified” and a new planning application by developers BAM could lead to contract negotiations with city council, starting next month.

The previous funding package for the event centre included €21m of Government grant aid, €9m of a repayable loan and another €6.5m planned for public realm works.

Mr Coveney has said the extra public cost for the project could not be revealed until contract negotiations between Bam, operators Live Nation and Cork City Council are concluded







This is definitely happening.

Premier Inn to occupy redeveloped Moore's Hotel site




PREMIER Inn has been announced as the hotel brand that will occupy a redeveloped site on Morrison’s Quay.

The British hotel chain is already established at Dublin Airport and has plans for three further branches in the capital, but its 183-bed Cork branch will the first outside Dublin on the site of the former Moore’s Hotel in the city centre.

The owner of the Premier Inn brand, Whitbread, have said their hotel will be within a five-minute walk of the events centre which they have described as being currently “under construction”.

Planning was granted for the events centre earlier this month by Cork City Council.

The hotel development, by the Dublin-based Greenleaf Group, will include the conservation, modification and restoration of three protected structures at numbers 11, 12 and 13 Morrison’s Quay to allow for three new office buildings.

A new-build four to six-storey office and hotel development is also slated for the site.

That premier Inn building looks all wrong. I know that 3 buildings in the middle have preservation orders.

Even if they made the 2 new wings either side the same height...

It's a dog's dinner.
