€90m Cork docklands plan gets green light
DEVELOPMENT of Cork's vast docklands is set to be kick-started by a €90m office block aimed at resolving a chronic shortage of commercial space in the city centre. The Navigation Square complex, which is comprises four separate blocks on a 2.25 acre site in the heart of Cork city centre, will provide accommodation for up to 3,000 employees and more than 310,000sq ft of office space. It ranks as the largest development of its type ever undertaken outside Dublin. Yesterday, An Bord Pleanála (ABP) confirmed the withdrawal of all remaining planning appeals to the development. The project was granted planning permission by Cork City Council last September but a number of planning objections were lodged. The withdrawal of all appeals now means that construction work will begin immediately.
