Decision looms on outline plans for new ‘Ceannt Quarter’
A decision is looming from CIE management on outline proposals for the development of ‘Ceannt Station Quarter’ – a project which will cost several hundred million euro and shape the future of Galway City Centre.Last September, CIE advertised for a partner for the redevelopment of 8.18 acres into a new urban quarter for the city.It will potentially include an extended train and bus station, along with a new hotel, shops, apartment ‘skyscraper’, offices and an urban park space.It is understood that the project attracted significant interest among national and international property development companies – according to the commercial property agents handling the deal, as well as the well-documented pent-up demand for high-quality office space and residential units, around 20 national and international brand names are looking for retail space here of a suitable size.
