Topping out milestone at one of Ireland’s largest student accommodation projects
We have topped out on one of the largest student accommodation projects in Ireland for client CA Ventures.
The 10-storey development at Carrigrohane Road in Cork, at the old Coca Cola bottling site, will have a gross floor area of approximately 19,267 sq m, 623 bedrooms and include an onsite gym, common networking spaces, cycle storage, studio space and a sky lounge with views of the River Lee.
Once complete the accommodation scheme will serve students at the University College Cork, the city’s University Hospital and the Cork Institute of Technology.
The rooms will include en-suite toilets and showers, premium furnishings, kitchenettes with burners, appliances, a fridge and countertop and cabinet space.
The new Novel Student community will also include a range of shared amenities – such as study and meeting rooms, tea lounges, relaxation rooms and breakfast bars with complimentary coffee.
Felim Blaney, Contract Manager for Farrans Construction said: “This is an exciting milestone for this project as we continue to make excellent progress on site. It was capped off with an early morning concrete pour. Carrigrohane Road is one of the largest student accommodations in Ireland and we are proud to be delivering it to a high standard for our client CA Ventures. This is a high-end luxury building which will provide a substantial boost to the student accommodation available in this popular city. We have extensive experience in this sector and we have recently completed Aster House in Belfast also for CA Ventures.”
Carlo Matta, President and Head of Europe for CA Ventures added: “As one of the largest PBSA schemes in Ireland and the largest PBSA scheme under the Novel Student brand, Bottleworks answers to the mounting demand for student accommodation in Cork and Ireland’s broader student accommodation crisis. We look forward to improving the quality of life of students in Ireland through the delivery of two additional PBSA schemes in Belfast and Dublin.”
