Objections Raised To Proposed 193-Bedroom Cork Hotel
Plans by multinational construction company BAM to build a 120,000 square foot hotel and office development on Cork's Sullivan Quay, which were provisionally approved by Cork County Council in November of 2017, have been appealed to An Bord Pleanála.
The Irish Independent reports that Deirdre Condon, the owner of a premises operated by Griffith College that is adjacent to the proposed site of the hotel, has appealed Cork County Council's decision to green light the development after she sought assurances last summer that the college's daily operations would not be adversely affected by the presence of the hotel.
BAM is said to have secured an as-yet-unidentified premium hotel brand to run the proposed venue, which is planned to encompass 193 bedrooms within a 12-storey cylindrical tower. An Bord Pleanála is expected to deliver a verdict on the appeal in the coming months.
