#TideTurns-The Irish Examiner looks at future developments of the City of Cork, among which are featured below plans for the city-centre ‘docklands’ and for the port downriver in the lower harbour.
The An Bord Pleanala granting of planning for Port of Cork’s move and expansion to Ringaskiddy (and, partly to Marino Point too) will be of major consequence from 2018. This will facilitate agri-business growth and freeing up high-value sites in the city’s quays for offices, hotels and apartments.
It won’t be the over-arching and grandiose Dockland plans of the early 2000s, but development will be facilitated, with some remarkable sites such as Port of Cork’s bonded warehouses and own classic, limestone offices coming up for grabs.
In addition the former Haulbowline Industries site at Passage West, which as previously reported on Afloat went for €25 million less than a decade ago, is now on the market for a fraction of that price.
