A planning application to build a 183-bed hotel and three office buildings on the site of the former Moore's Hotel on Morrison's Island is the latest in a seies of new hotel projects
in the city..
In its proposal, Dublin-based Greenleaf Group has applied to conserve, modify and restore three protected structures at numbers 11, 12 and 13 Morrison's Quay to include three new office buildings.
Around this, they will build a new four to six-storey office and hotel development with 183 beds.
The development marks the latest chapter in the history of Moore's Hotel which has three 19th century facades and has been in poor condition for some time. It ceased trading more than 15 years ago and was temporarily used by the Cork School of Music when it was replacing its Union Quay music school in the mid-2000s.
