An Bord Pleanála has granted planning permission for this high profile mixed use development proposal in Cork city centre designed by Scott Tallon Walker Architects for developer BAM Property Ltd.
The proposal includes a 220-bed 4 star hotel, incorporating a 12-storey cylindrical tower on this very prominent and important site on Sullivan's Quay, on the south bank of the south channel of the River Lee, overlooking the Grand Parade. The hotel development, which includes 2 levels of underground car parking, a bar, restaurant and retail area, as well as a gym and 11th floor viewing lounge, will be built alongside a new six-storey office development of c. 8,000 square metres.
BAM acquired the site from the Revenue Commissioners in 2006 and had initially obtained planning permission for a mixed-use hotel and office development in 2009, also to Scott Tallon Walker’s design. The current proposal has brought the hotel use to a more prominent location on the site, to occupy the landmark cylindrical tower.
