Planning permission granted for Ireland’s tallest building

Cork City Council have granted planning permission for a €140 million development at the old Port of Cork which will include Ireland’s tallest building.

The 140 metre (34 storey) tower will be built at Custom House Quay and will house a 241-bedroom five-star hotel.

The development, by Tower Holdings, will also include retail units and an interactive visitors centre for maritime culture and heritage.

Part of the plan also includes the restoration of Custom House along with the bonded warehouses which will be open to the public for the first time.

Currently, the tallest building in Ireland is the 22-storey tall Capital Dock development in Dublin.
