Lord Mayor Councillor Catherine Clancy officially opens the new Spriggs Roads Housing Complex

‌On Thursday 22nd May, Lord Mayor Councillor Catherine Clancy officially opened Cork City Council’s new housing development at Spriggs Road. 

The construction of this €5 million housing project which was completed in January 2014 is fantastic news for the community in Gurranabraher. 

The development has been completed to a particularly high standard thanks to the design and construction team which included Architects Michael Casey and Associates, main contractor Deermount Construction, Engineers Ray Keane & Associates and Michael Barrett Partnership, all of whom worked in close collaboration together to deliver an exceptional housing development.

The regeneration scheme at the Spriggs Road estate includes

  • The refurbishment of the old flats complex, creating 36 new apartments
  • The construction of 5 new infill houses
  • A new local Community Centre which will be managed by Cork City Partnership
  • The refurbishment of two houses at the corner of St Mary's Place and Templeacre Avenue
  • A large green sloping area to the north and east of the development has been retained as a Park and has been rejuvenated with pathways, landscaping and low railings on the boundary for improved safety

Some photos of the opening are here to view..
