Plan a new supermarket, cafe, 43 apartments and more for Cork City’s High Street

There are major plans for an overhaul of one Cork city’s high street, as tenders have been submitted to tear down five buildings and build apartments, shops, offices and a supermarket.

The application for the huge development on Main St in Carrigtwohill was lodged last week and if it goes ahead it will be a huge game changer for East Cork City.

Everything is divided into five blocks, which would be mapped as follows.

Block 1

An “anchor” supermarket which would include an off-license and 32 apartments above (8 single-bed and 24 twin-bed).

Block 2

A commercial unit with offices above.

Block 3

A cafe on the ground floor with two 2-bedroom apartments above

Block 4

Nine apartments (6 one-bed and 3 two-bed)

Block 5

Ground floor retail units.

Alongside these plans, the applicant, Ardarostig Developments Ltd, is seeking to install traffic lights at the junction and provide access by bicycle and on foot.

The submission went to council on March 1 and Cork County Council is expected to make a decision by April 25.
