23 Oct Limerick Twenty Thirty welcomes re-development plan for Colbert Station
Limerick Twenty Thirty CEO David Conway has welcomed the commitment by Limerick City and County Council, the Land Development Agency and CIE on a masterplan for the development of a 21st Century urban neighbourhood at Limerick’s city centre train and bus station, Colbert Station.
Said Mr Conway: “This is again a very positive move for Limerick. The transformation of the area around Colbert Station will be another major catalyst of growth for the city and region providing excellent development opportunities. This masterplan exercise complements the work Limerick Twenty Thirty is doing at the Opera and Cleeves sites and what we have already done with Gardens International. It again shows the city’s ambition, which is illustrated through these and other development projects like the new UL city campus and International Rugby Experience.
“It’s a transformation that is happening now at pace and is going to change the physical and social landscape of Limerick for generations to come as well as have a huge and positive ripple effect out into the mid-west region.”
He continued: “Another very positive element of the Colbert Station area project is that it brings together key national and local stakeholders to a project that is in keeping with the wider vision for Limerick. We wish all involved every success and look forward to working closely with them.”
