The Aurora building was a proposed construction project that with its height of 109 metres, would have been the tallest building in Ireland. Proposed for the corner of Great Victoria and Ventry Street, the development was to contain almost 300 apartments and 7,000 square feet (700 m2) of commercial space. It was seen as a key regeneration project for the area, which did not experience the same level of investment as the city centre, Cathedral Quarter or Laganside in recent years. Planning permission was refused, and a subsequent appeal was withdrawn in February 2011.
