#WaterfrontProperty - Mayor of Galway councillor Pearce Flannery, says the proposed €100 million development at the Docks would be a major step forward for the city.
His observation writes Galway Bay FM, was made at day two of the oral hearing concerning thedevelopment which would create a 26 thousand square metre office complex and public square in the heart of the city.
The building of the complex across Dock Road, Queen Street and Bothar na Long is led by Gerry Barret’s company Edward Capital.
Mayor Flannery told the hearing the Bonham Quay development provides an opportunity to energise the city, bringing vibrancy and new life into Galway.
He said the city has lost big firms such as AirBnB and LinkedIn to Dublin, while other cities have forged ahead because Galway has been constrained with development.
He stressed the plan is not about a building but about people, adding that the project would attract high-volume jobs into the area.
