The developer now has until July 3 to supply significant further details to address planners’ concerns.
Last August, BAM submitted a fresh planning application for the €80m South Main St project.
The amended application included an increase in height, as well as more than 2,000sq m of additional office space. In October, planners in City Hall wrote to BAM asking for significant further information on the project, including a specific proposed construction timeline.
Planners also raised concerns about the “extent of dead frontage” and the glass-fronted area on South Main St, noting that an alternative design would be more appropriate. Clarifications on the location of entrances, exits, service gates, and access points have also been sought.
BAM was given a six-month period to comply with the request, with an April 3 deadline.
The company did not reply until last week, when it wrote to Cork City Council seeking an extension.
