O' Flynn Construction
120,000 sqm over 1.24 hectares
The key objectives for the Elysian were to achieve a development of sufficient density and mix of uses to create a sustainable, vibrant district that integrates living, working and leisure, connects to a wider area and promotes activity outside of working hours in this area of the City.
Creation of the new civic gateway landmark building on the south west corner of the site which is heralded as a major point of arrival in Cork city from the airport, the ferry terminal and the west, reflects the surrounding areas civic function, and acts as a beacon for Cork and the renewal of the area.
Apart from its function as a dwelling place, a tower of this nature projects a statement reflecting the aspiration of Cork City to compete with other world cities, its scale giving it a landmark character implying an in built public significance as a building and location.
The development consists of 211 no apartments, 6no. Retail units, office accommodation, podium level landscaped gardens of approx. 1acre and 553no. car parking spaces at ground and basement levels.
