#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.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
