They were still only finalising the terms of reference for PwC review of the event centre options this time last month.

I presume those boys will want to visit a few other foreign cities and event centres in the next few months before deciding where to piss away our money.
 
There are a load of developments either ready to go or in the immediate pipeline and not just old Celtic Tiger pipe dream stuff.

- Irish Rail are building a new entrance at Kent Station while the Council is installing new footpaths and cycle lanes between the station and the city centre.

- Owen O'Callaghan has planning permission for an office block at the old animal's home by the bus station.

- There is also planning granted for offices on the Brooks Haughton site behind South Terrace.

- As op said there is a €50m office development planned for the site in front of the Elysian. This will likely proceed quickly. It is from developer John Cleary who has already filled his City Gate development in Mahon with new tenants.

- One of the event centres will get the go ahead for government cash probably before February or March and would should start quickly.

- Work will finish on the cycle lanes at Washington Street and the overhaul of Parnell Place.

- We will likely see the part pedestrianisation of Patrick's Street sometime in 2014 and then work will begin to make MacCurtain Street two way.

- I think UCC is moving ahead with their new sports campus across the motorway from the Greyhound Track.

Some of these plans are controversial but either way there is a return of construction to Cork.
 
I think the Aldi store in the Elysian will caise major traffic problems on the surrounding roads. That block is essentially in the centre of a major traffic intersection already filled to capacity during busy times. Where will there be room for lanes for backed up traffic entering the carpark?

There are plenty of undeveloped sites in the area which would be more suitable.
 
Speaking of the Elysian, I parked opposite there today (Friday) in City Hall multi-storey for 2 hours and 10 minutes. Still a nice walk from there into Patrick St. When I returned, I couldn't believe the cost - €9!
Extortionate. I won't be returning.
