The site, which extends to 0.75 of an acre beside the famed English Market, was previously occupied by six shops, The Vineyard bar and the former Capitol cinema. It had been derelict for almost a decade but has now been cleared to make way for retail and office space in the heart of Cork City.
The Capitol will combine a major retail destination with world-class offices.
