CORK | Victoria Hotel Redevelopment, Patrick's Street/Cook Street Corner | Planning

The files have been uploaded to EPlan, with a decision due for the 12th of February. The currently three storey previous hotel will be turned into a full retail building, with another floor added on top. It is intended for a high end store (with everything pointing to Zara - I am pretty sure one of the renders even has the Zara logo in it).

The height increase looks fine on the street, as it is now only ever so slightly taller than the Penneys/Jack & Jones/Vera Moda/Tiger buildings next to it (increased from 18.2m to 21.4m tall). The building will change from a yellow/cream colour to a light grey. The building, according to the plans, will be of extremely high quality. A double height entrance will be added to Cook Street, awnings will be added to the building and the large ball room on the second floor will be retained and restored. They are really going for large, open and grand in this, and from the renders it looks like they are doing it very well. They also seem to plan to remove a lot of the modern 'improvements' which have been done to the building in the last few years and bring back the historical features which were covered over.

On page 19 of the architectural design statement there is a comparison picture of the old building and the new building, and I actually think that the new building fits into the area of the street much more than the current, in terms of design, colour and size.
