Penrose Cork and Irish Tech: Expanding Infrastructure
Cork and its Penrose Wharf are expanding, and we are here to help you find the perfect role in Ireland’s exciting tech capital. But, as we have firmly established ourselves into 2020, what is there to look for in Cork, how is it expanding, and is it the place for you? Let’s look at a few ways in which Cork is moving into the future!
New Tech Neighbourhood: Cork
The developments taking place in areas such as Penrose Dock and Horgan’s Quay are showing that our city is visually rising. Is this a city you have considered before?
The Prism Tower, due for completion in 2021 is set to be the first centrepiece of the new urban landscape of Cork. As recently as May 2020, it was estimated that Tech is accounting for 79% of City Centre property acquisitions, seconded by Professional Services expansion in the city. With this healthy ecosystem in mind, our tech clients are widening their reach, and opportunities are there for you!
Cork City Centre: Living
Cork’s residential scene is rising too, with the City Centre is set to welcome a new residential skyscraper on the well-known ‘Sextant’ site. This development is within close distance to the Cork tech hub on South Mall and the Penrose tech neighbourhood. It is just a stone’s throw from One Navigation Square, home to Clearstream.
Located on the South Link road, the Railway Gardens development will add close and accessible living quarters for the Cork community, and if your company is based in the City Centre you can commute by foot!
This central, vibrant area is bringing vitality to new areas of the city. What could be more exciting than being part of this?
With €1 billion of hotel, residential and apartment developments currently being undertaken in our city, have you considered one of these options for your Million Dollar listing?
Housing developments have also been announced within a close commute to roles in Cork in the Frankfield area of Douglas, and the proposed enhancement of the overall Cork Commuter Network extending to locations such as Mallow and Midleton (home to the famed Jameson Distillery).
Improving Transport Links: Cork
Cork is expanding and so are our access routes, with consistent improvements in infrastructure.
The upgrades taking place to the Dunkettle Interchange is just one part of this and will provide a critical bypass into Cork City Centre from the Dublin approach road.
But what are the options here for you, and have you considered how you can grow in this impressive city? A 24-hour bus route links the idyllic Fort Camden, through to Carrigaline and Cork City Centre. This is making working options more flexible and high-density areas more accessible.
In the future, the anticipated Light Rail Service will lessen Cork’s Carbon footprint and deliver a reliable service from Ballincollig out to Mahon Point and Cork Airport. This will also provide greater links for enterprise, with well-known tech & commercial names such as Amazon, Musgrave, VMWare and Dell EMC all having bases near different parts of the route.
So consider this Commercial hub for your next career move or investment in this city that will open its doors and make you feel welcome!
