Cork and London based property development company, BMOR, today announced their intention to lodge plans for a mixed-use development, supporting the regeneration of one of Cork City’s most historic street.
Key features of this proposal include the planned restoration of Coleman’s Lane which, since medieval times has provided direct access between North Main Street and Grattan Street and, the development of a pocket park, which will be accessible to the general public.
The developers are finalising negotiations with several Cork-based building contractors to undertake the construction of this project which is expected to generate in the region of 150 construction jobs. Following the completion of the North Main Street development, a further 30 permanent job positions will also be created.
As well as opening a new office on the South Mall, BMOR have underlined their goal of helping to regenerate Cork city and county by embarking on number of other developments in the area. These developments form part of BMOR’s plans to grow their portfolio here, the first of which is a 43-house residential development in Killeens, where construction will commence once the lockdown is lifted.
Speaking this week, Director at BMOR, Paul Irwin said, "As a Cork native, it gives me great pleasure and pride to present our ambitious plans for Cork City. The scheme, designed by O'Mahony Pike Architects, balances the rich heritage of North Main Street with sleek, innovative, and contemporary design. We believe this project will help to kick start the exciting redevelopment plans envisaged for this part of the city."
