Limerick Riverside Development proposal – A welcome boost for the City

Limerick property developer Rudi Butler of Kirkland Investments has finally gotten the go ahead from Limerick City and County Council to build €40 million 14 storey office  block in the Bishop’s Quay area of Limerick City. The Planning permission which was delayed for several months was granted on 22nd December 2016 and the proposed development which is to include 150,000 square feet of office space, 42 luxury apartments, a restaurant and cafes is hoped to commence in March 2017.  The former ESB office on Cecil street  is due to be demolished  to make way for the new development but one of the conditions to be adhered to is that the areas surrounding the Bishop’s Palace at 104 Henry Street, a listed building dating back to 1775 must be conserved. This is good news for the Construction Sector in Limerick and Limerick Auctioneers and Estate Agents will welcome the extra office space and living accommodation that will be made available.
