Ireland’s tallest building granted planning permission

Planning permission has been granted for Ireland’s tallest building following a number of unsuccessful appeals against its construction.

The 34-storey (140 metre) building will be located at Cork City’s Custom House Quay port site.

The €140 million regeneration projection was granted planning permission by Cork City Council last October. Currently, the tallest building in Ireland is the 88-metre tall Obel Tower located in Belfast.

The development, planned by New York-based Tower Holdings, will include a 34-storey hotel tower, 25 serviced suites and a range of commercial uses.
