€25m regeneration plan for Cork’s North Main Street

Cork and London based property development company BMOR, this week announced their intention to lodge plans for a mixed-use development, supporting the regeneration of Cork City’s most historic street.

The proposed twenty-five million euro mixed-use scheme on North Main Street comprising of a 280-bed student accommodation facility and two new retail units boasts impressive amenities including a gym, laundry facilities, a study, a library, communal working areas, and a landscaped external courtyard.

Located in the historic heart of the city, the proposed scheme showcases BMOR’s strong commitment to the continuing development of Cork and it will undoubtedly serve as a key contributor to the much-needed regeneration of North Main Street.

“With the assistance of Cork City Council, who have been very supportive of this regeneration initiative since it was initially presented to them, we fully intend to proceed promptly with this venture upon receipt of planning permission.” Mr Paul Irwin, a director of BMOR said.

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.

As well as opening a new office on the South Mall, BMOR have underlined their goal of embarking on a number of other developments in the area to grow their portfolio here, the first of which is a 43-house residential development in Killeens near Blarney, where construction will commence once the lockdown is lifted.
