All of the first four floors done and half way done the fifth Pictures from CorkCityCentre and torban69 on Twitter. Also, the website has received a huge update with loads of new renders and a lot of information on the three office buildings The receptions of the two riverside buildings look extremely nice! Weirdly, though, the offices are named No.1, No.2 and No.4... no No.3

The entrance of the hotel is quite literally right next to the subway portal. If you were getting the train from/to Dublin and staying there, it would be perfect

Funny, in the renders before the sides of the building looked straight, but in the above it looks like more of a 'dog leg'. Quite a weird shaped building (which I like, to be honest!)

That's about a fair (~20%) increase, does the submission mention how they're achieving that? Additional building? Additional floors? Smaller apartments? Conversion of use of other buildings in the original plans?

They are looking to merge the buildings together and increase the floors to 11

It already is 11, I think they're making it go from 7 storeys to 11, instead of 6 to 11 (or maybe 12?). 12 would be amazing as the 11 had no objections (not even An Taisce, who didn't want 11 but said they understood or something). An Bord Pleanala would definitely allow a height increase. I think any taller than 12/13 would look out of place though due to how bulky the building is and where it is positioned. However, we won't know any concrete details until the consultation is finished with, sadly

Sorry for the second post in the row but I just found this picture of the development (prior to any SHD changes) when viewed from Railway Street. I love how the retained building fits in. It's currently a creamy salmon colour so I wonder if they plan on painting it white. I love the landscaping and I believe this will be the entrance to the residential buildings

The new bus and cycle access route to Kent Station, between Horgans Quay and Railway street is closed until July. Is that due to the HQ development or water/gas utility works?

^ They have been doing watermain works on Horgan's Quay and Lower Glanmire Road for quite some time now so it's probably that. Also, that bus/cycle route is actually (judging off what was said in the old North Docks LAP) an extension of Alfred Street, although that might get confusing (like Anglesea Street by the City Hall modern offices VS Anglesea Street by Ramen)

Here are two pictures of the hotel from opus on boards.ie that was posted during the week

It looks like I might have found some (poor quality and hopefully lacking the proper materials being used) renders of the changed residential buildings (from here). The new sizes (especially the quay side) are very welcome, however I'm not sure how I feel about the unnecessary setbacks

Looks good to me. This should be the standard level of density for new builds in the city... or even the minimum density in the docklands.

The hotel has basically topped out. Pictures from Cork Crane Count on Twitter

Looking at the displayed images on the site hoardings, at the front of the hotel, it seems there will be an additional 8th floor with maybe a penthouse suite or something as the floor area is small. The roof is wedge shaped from 5 floors at the rear (lower Glanmire road) to 8 at the front.

From William Murphy on Flickr. I was looking at the renders again and, as discussed above, it does seem there will be an eighth storey towards the front, like the seventh. If so, one floor left to go

It would be great if they put a restaurant/cocktail bar on the top 8th floor with glass windows all the way around. Would be a unique location in our city for food and a drink.

Picture from opus on boards.ie. The shape of the hotel and height are all now done, hopefully the facade starts going up soon

No announcement of who yet but it looks like 30,000sq ft of office space has been pre-let so far. Iím wondering if that is an error in the article because that means less than one floor has been let so far. If the article meant 30,000sq m of space, then that would be most of the scheme (37,000 sq m/400,000 sq ft). I donít know why they would pre let less than one floor and then 1) announce it in a newspaper and 2) begin construction
