Former ‘The Cobbler’ site in Cork a shoe-in lease

The former Cobbler unit, for lease on Oliver Plunkett Street.

A prime stand on Oliver Plunkett Street, in Cork’s central retail district, is being brought to market for lease by Cohalan Downing.

This prominent south facing retail unit is situated immediately opposite Cork’s GPO at the intersection of Winthrop Street and Pembroke Street.

This general area is already home to a host of established names such as Vodafone, Pandora, L’Occitane, Minihans Chemist, Butler’s Chocolate Café and The Old Oak. Rob Coughlan of Cohalan Downing says that its location gives the benefit of ‘unrivalled volumes of passing footfall and an extremely high profile.’ He concludes that retail demand in Cork is positive, with a limited number of available units.

The property in question, 110 Oliver Plunkett Street, extends to c.1,460 sq. ft. It comes with large glazed frontage and was previously in use as ‘The Cobbler Leather Shop’. It was, for many years, a landmark store in the area.

This is a self-contained three-storey plus attic, mid-terrace building. Retail space of 592 sq. ft. is located on the ground floor, with office space, a stockroom and staff accommodation on the upper floors. Oliver Plunkett Street is what is termed ‘a Pedestrian Priority Zone’, with traffic restrictions from 11 am to 5 pm each day.

The guide price is €50k, for further information, contact Cohalan Downing on 021-4277717.
