A planning application has been lodged for more than 200 homes in a new apartment development in the Cork suburb of Mahon.

Clyde Real Estate Cork, headed by former Presidential candidate Sean Gallagher and investor Colm Piercy propose the construction of 204 apartments across three blocks ranging in height from five to seven storeys adjacent to Telus International facility (formerly Voxpro) on the Loughmahon Road.

The development will include creche, 54 parking spaces, 460 bicycle parking spaces and communal amenity rooms.

The planning documents state that the site is zoned for Business and technology purposes and would require a material contravention of the City Development Plan, something planners in City Hall said they will consider. 

Loughmahon has seen extensive redevelopment in the past two decades including the Mahon Point Shopping Centre, Mahon Retail Cork,  City Gate and the current upgrades to the adjacent Blackrock to Passage West Greenway.

A decision on the planning application is expected in early July.
