It also includes provision for supporting tenant amenity facilities at podium and roof terrace levels.

The development would include 282 one-bedroom apartments, 414 two-bedroom apartments, and 127 three-bedroom apartments at upper levels.

Car parking, bicycle stores and shelters, bin stores, plant rooms and lighting are also all included in the plans.

The proposed development also includes hard and soft landscaping, boundary treatments and public realm works on Centre Park Road.

Vehicular access to the proposed development is to be provided via Centre Park Road.

Plans welcomed

Fianna Fail councillor Terry Shannon welcomed the latest development plans for the South Docklands.

“We have a housing crisis, and this ticks a lot of boxes.

“Clearly, we have identified that area for high rise. It is in a good location.

“It is close to the city centre so from an access point of view and pedestrian point of view it is in the right place,” he said.

However, Mr Shannon said he has concerns in relation to the overdevelopment of that area.

“In general, I am in favour of the development down in the Marina. The concern I have would be in relation to overdevelopment.

“We need to be careful that we don’t overdevelop the area because there are issues with drainage.”

Tiznow Property Company Limited is also currently advancing with a planning application with An Bord Pleanála for permission to construct a strategic housing development (SHD) of 190 apartments in a single building ranging in height from one to 12 storeys at the former Cork Warehouse Company site.

A decision on this development is currently pending by An Bord Pleanála.

The two sites overlap on Centre Park Road.

The site is also located near the former Ford Distribution site, where permission was granted to Marina Quarter Limited last April for development including more than 1,000 apartments as well as commercial and community facilities.
