One Albert Quay moves one step closer to completion

Thousands of people have viewed a one minute time lapse-video which was created to demonstrate the construction progress of the landmark One Albert Quay project. The fascinating video has already been viewed almost 7,000 times in less than a week and is available to view on the development’s website


One Albert Quay, the unique Grade A office development in Cork City Centre has kept the public’s interest since construction began over a year ago. In order to document the construction progress, live site cameras were installed on the roof of the adjoining Sextant pub. The popular project is now in the final stages of construction and reached an important milestone last week with the removal of the tower crane on Saturday 17th October.


External site finishes have commenced and it is expected that all external works will be completed by year end. State-of-the-art fit-out works have also started internally for occupiers such as Tyco which represents a multi-million euro investment. The building features some of the latest technology available globally such as destination control lifts and an extensive building management system linking access control, energy efficiency and real time building data.


The building which was in recent weeks awarded Gold LEED shell and core pre certification from the US Green Building Council, is one of the most energy efficient high tech buildings in the country.


Project Manager for JCD, Martin O’Brien said, “We are very happy with the level of progress on site and are on target for a building occupation date of mid-February 2016. The removal of the tower crane marked a significant milestone in the project.


We have seen a high level of interest in the remaining available space in the building with space ranging from smaller scale 4,000 – 6,000 sq ft which will suit certain occupiers as well as larger space up to 15,000 sq ft.”


CD is also behind the redevelopment of the Capitol cinema site on Grand Parade in Cork City.


This regenerational project has been granted planning permission by Cork City Council but the decision has been appealed to An Bord Pleanála. Pending a satisfactory decision by the planning appeals board, due in January, it is ready to start construction immediately.
