There will be associated car and cycle parking, bin store, servicing areas, amenity space & landscaping and access arrangements from Merchants Quay and associated raised kerbing.

The building will be four storeys in height with the height influenced by neighbouring property.

Designed as a single building it will create a strong frontage on to Merchant's Quay, actively turning the corner on to Canal Street.

The three retail units will see Units 1 and 2 having single aspect on to Merchants Quay while Unit 3 will take advantage of the sites corner location and enjoy active frontage on both Merchants Quay and Canal Street.

At present the area is seeing a bit of a resurgence both in renovations and in rebuilds. The roof of the former O'Hare's Bar in Canal Street was stripped a week or so ago and plans are also in place there for housing.
