A most unique property with immediate access to the proposed M28 motorway connecting Ringaskiddy to the Dunkettle Interchange. Rare opportunity to acquire a private 'HQ' style Campus with undeniable potential for future development given its strategic location in Ringaskiddy near the expanding Deep Water Port, flourishing Pharmaceutical Industry and the recently commenced M28 Road Network. This landmark property was originally developed as the Castlewarren Safety Centre providing office & administrative accommodation in a modern 4,500 sq.ft building with an abundance of private car parking, circulation space and an additional specialist training building of some 5,000 sq.ft. The overall site is zoned €Industryand extends to 1.67 acres (0.68 ha) approx. Property is offered for sale with the benefit of Vacant Possession. Location Castlewarren Safety Centre is located in Ringaskiddy where many of the the world's top pharmaceutical manufacturing companies and logistics providers are based. Local occupiers include Pfizer, BioMarin, Janssen, Doyle Shipping, DePuy Synthes, Moog and Brittany Ferries. The surrounding land is part of the strategic land bank of the Industrial Development Authority (IDA) who actively market their landbanks to overseas investment. The area benefits from substantial infrastructure and services coupled with its close proximity to Cork City (16km), Cork International Airport (14km.) and Carrigaline (4.5km.) Castlewarren Safety Centre is within walking distance of the recently upgraded and extended Port of Cork Deepwater Berth which has experienced a dramatic increase in activity in recent years as a result of the strategic redirection of business from the Cork City Quays and Tivoli Docks. The recently approved M28 Road project, on which construction has now commenced, is in close proximity to the campus. (See accompanying Magnifly Artists impression on front cover). The last roundabout on the new M28 motorway, before Ringaskiddy, will be immediately adjacent to the campus, as per the indicative map below.

Description This unique campus, originally developed in the year 2000, accommodates a modern two storey office block (4,500 sq ft.), a three storey fire training building (5,000 sq ft.), a confined space training complex, a large training yard with a useful range of ancillary facilities. Such ancillary facilities include male /female changing rooms, canteen, compressor room, instructors' area, work rooms etc. The fire training building was used to train emergency response personnel in realistic conditions in environments which replicate various hazardous workplace environments. The bespoke design of the building enabled the on-demand creation of variousvarious 'realistic training scenarios' to replicate possible hazardous situations which may be experienced in the industrial and commercial workplaces. The flexible design of the fire training building allows instructors to replicate a myriad of training environments from a three-storey domestic house to marine firefighting training, which is achieved by the provision of various decks, ship to shore connections, vertical ladders/shafts and bulkhead doors within the building. Firmly in the mind of the design team for the main building was ease for conversion to alterative office/ administrative uses at a point in the future. As such, the Castlewarren Campus may easily be converted to more general commercial uses by the next occupiers, if required. This substantial site extends to some 1.67 acres (0.68 ha) and given its strategic location has significant potential for further development, subject to the necessary approvals. Large portions of the site are currently tarmacadamed for external circulation and private car parking.
