#MajorDevelopments - Major developments worth several hundred million euro are signalled for strategic Cork city and harbour water-fronting sites, at CIÉ-owned Horgan’s Quay, and separately at Marino Point for Port of Cork.

The Irish Examiner writes that a  powerful development partnership of investment and development company Clarendon Properties, jointly with builders BAM Ireland has been selected by tender by CIÉ, for a sizeable six-acre site at Horgan’s Quay/Kent station, used by two million rail passengers a year.

The prime site at the city/western end of the sprawling Horgan’s Quay plot at Railway Street, is expected to be developed for offices for FDI companies/financial services, plus apartments for the rental market, along with leisure, most likely a hotel/aparthotel, plus shops and services.

Likely to have a feature building at the city end, where CIÉ is currently developing a new access point to Kent Station and including some protected structures, it has scope to be the oft-heralded game-changer for Cork city’s quays and docklands development, recovering pace after the economic crash and construction sector collapse post-2008.
