The developers of a proposed €120 million hotel and apartment quayside complex in Cork have welcomed the decision by Cork City Council to grant planning for the project and have expressed optimism that work will be able to start next year. Murrayforde Developments was granted planning permission by Cork City Council for construction of the 120-bedroom hotel and 80 apartments on a 0.39 hectare site on Kyrl’s Quay near Cornmarket Street, on the north channel of the River Lee. Tom Murray of Murrayforde Developments said the company had consulted closely with council planning officials and was “quite pleased” that the development had been granted permission. Mr Murray said that he hoped construction of the project could begin early next year. Architect James Leahy, of Leahy and Associates, also expressed satisfaction with the council decision and said that he believed the design helped “finish the area”, which has recently seen a major development.
