Fast track planning permission being sought for 17-storey apartment tower in Cork city
Fast track planning permission is being sought this week for a 17-storey apartment tower at a density of 454 units per hectare, on Cork city’s South Link Road, on a compact site previously a rail track goods yard and sidings. The application for 118 apartments aimed at the Build to Rent (BTR) sector will be made directly to An Bord Pleanala for the development, on a 0.26 hectare site, linking to Rockborough Road by Bord Gais’s HQ, and to the South Link pedestrian bridge linking to Hibernian Road towards Anglesea Street. Being christened Railway Gardens and promoted by the Scally family who own the site and the adjoining business OB Heating, the site previously had planning permission granted in 2008 for offices.
