They even have their own private little car park under ground just to the right hand side of the main public car park. Sneaky like that. The public one is too riff raff for them.

Well the City does need development in the area of the Quays so whether it's Cleary or O Callaghan I'm not bothered. The traffic situation at Mahon is a disaster though and one would think there was sufficient real estate to have created a dedicated lane to Skehard Road/Mahon. At the moment you're bunched either way because you'll hit the Douglas traffic on the Well Road. I wonder if the €100M being invested in the Dunkettle realignment would not be better spent on alleviating traffic in these areas.

I wouldn't waste too much time hoping for miracles. They forgot a Dublin-Cork route in the first published plan of the Tunnel Interchange development.

Also forgot east-west pedestrian and cycle access in the draft and the amended plan showed the Dublin-Cork traffic first going east via slip-roads, through a dumbbell interchange, then heading west to the city.

Being honest, this redevelopment will probably see a return to the days of Dublin-Cork traffic going through Glanmire to avoid the interchange.

We've obviously got our brightest and best on the job. As usual.

On the otherhand if you had a €100M at the moment to spend would you put it all into one project or would you try to spread it.

I guess it depends on which politician has duristiction in the area. I would say that the Carrigaline/Ringaskiddy/Douglas/Passage West traffic situation is a priority. Particularly in terms of port access and support for the pharmaceutical plants. A design has already been completed for the Carr's Hill to Ringaskiddy development.

I'd say the next priority should be the connection of the North and South Link Roads. It might alleviate some traffic travelling from the West of the City to the Northside/Dublin/Limerick access roads.

But like you said this is probably too sensible a plan..........

Passed the warehouse on Albert Quay the other day. Planning notice for the purposed office block is up on the wall. These bhoys are moving fast - good to see.

Developer withdraws office block plan

Wednesday, April 16, 2014
Plans for a nine-storey office block in the heart of Cork City with the potential to deliver up to 2,000 jobs have been withdrawn — even though the local authority gave it the green light.

The 200,000sq ft riverside building on Albert Quay proposed by John Cleary Developments was expected to accommodate 500 staff of anticipated anchor tenant, Swiss security systems multinational, Tyco.

Cork City Council granted planning permission for the development in February. However, by early March, it had been referred to An Bord Pleanála with three objectors.

Monahan Road Development Ltd said it was concerned at the scale of the development in relation to adjacent buildings and "the negative effect it will have on existing offices".

Another opponent was Elysian Management Ltd, a part of the O’Flynn Construction Group. It owns Ireland’s tallest building, the Elysian, adjacent to the proposed development site.

It appealed on a number of grounds, including that the environmental impact statement was inadequate; the height of the building was unacceptable; traffic issues were not addressed; and the decision allows encroachment onto private property at Port Lane.

The Elysian group complaining that another buildings height is "unacceptable"?? ?

2 other Cork developers who built empty unflexible developments objecting is farcical.

O'Flynn is finished after this after objecting to the scale with his 17 storey Elysian Tower lying idle. All these developers are finished anyway.

Yesterdays men wanting to influence the future.

Sounds like the developer will submit a new application anyway.
