Cork City Council has granted planning permission to International Investment ICAV to build a five to seven storey 171-bedroom hotel on MacCurtain Street and Brian Boru Street in Cork city.
As reported by The Irish Examiner, the hotel will be constructed on the former site of the Coliseum cinema, on which a bowling alley and arcade is currently located.
The plans for the hotel include a ground floor bar and restaurant.
Planning permission for the hotel was granted under 23 conditions including the provision of bicycle parking and conservation compliance with regards to the former postal sorting offices, which is a protected structure.
The granting of planning permission for the hotel can still be appealed to An Bord Pleanála.
