Anderson Quay had planning years before Navigation Square. They won't build without pre letting a certain amount of space, I'd imagine that is the issue, same as Camden Place and Trinity Quarter.

Some of it iirc but not enough to proceed with actually building the thing. Someone earlier in the thread said they were taking the old Cork Savings Bank building as offices.

They are currently developing that alright-student numbers are going way up especially in a post-Brexit scenario with more foreign students coming here and few Irish heading to the U.K. and they are almost out of room at their main campus.

They need to be involved in any Docklands development.

Not too sure I see his point, can't the motorway and city centre renewal be done in tandem??

To hell with a motorway to limerick (same thing really, innit). A northside ring road and associated monorail far more important imo

His point relates to the fact that motorways at city edges encourage sprawl and tend to exert huge pull factors in settlement patterns. Cork and Limerick need massive investment in city centre locations and this is much more important than the promised 14 minute journey time saving between the two cities. Another point worth making is that roads don't create jobs.
