Traffic stops at the lights by the building site of the Elysian. I passed by the other side of it, past the low rise section of the building and it towers over the street.
A look through the closed gate at the construction site of the new Elysian tower block in Cork.
It’s a far cry from what the building site looked like in 2005!
A tall crane looms over the building site of The Elysian, a new high-rise building that will house offices, apartments, a shopping center and underground parking. The main tower of the new building will be 17 storeys high, taller than anything else in the city.
Over a year ago I took a photo of the building site as it was then for the US Book. As you can see, they’ve dug the foundations and started on the main tower.
This picture was taken from the top of a 4 storey car park which gives you some idea of how tall that crane is!
