Property Description:

The Unit

Featuring a modern aluminium entrance onto Cork's historic Victorian Quarter, this recently renovated Ground Floor unit has a prominent location.

The 137m2 space is directly facing the upcoming pedestrian bridge from Harley Street which will link Merchant's Quay to MacCurtain Street.

The unit currently has planning and fire cert for Retail/Office use.

The Building

Thompson House represents a truly unique opportunity for office, retail and leisure use. Located on McCurtain Street in what has recently been dubbed Cork City's Victorian Quarter, the space was first developed in the 1880s for Thompson Bakers who supplied most of the loaves and cakes eaten in Cork City. Many of the original architectural features, including double height ceilings, exposed brick walls, steel pillars and the oven chimneys are in evidence.

A secondary, and larger, space was developed in the 1960s. The 'Glass Curtain' road frontage makes a bold statement while inside the space is well lit and has a modern industrial feel. Plans for an outside garden space are in progress.

The Street

Cork's Victorian Quarter is a unique historical destination offering an eclectic mix of speciality retail, hospitality and entertainment experiences. The Victorian Quarter is on the north side of the River Lee and is comprised of MacCurtain Street and the surrounding area.

MacCurtain Street is home to Cork's famous Metropole Hotel, Hotel Isaac's and has plans for two high occupancy hotels in the near future. It has a wide array of eating options ranging from casual pizza, burger or sushi diners to more upmarket options and tasting menus all conveniently on your door. Staff working in Thompson House have the convenience of a local gym, pool and yoga school located nearby along with the main shopping centre of Patrick's Street a 2 min walk away.

The Future

Upcoming developments in the area include the recently approved €50m redevelopment by the owners of the Metropole Hotel - "Hotel M" will be a five storey boutique hotel adding more footfall and attention to the historic street. Additionally, work is beginning directly adjacent to Thompson House on a further 73 room hotel.
