Village main street site for mixed-use development with full Planning Permission for 6 Retail Units, 16 Apartments and underground parking at Watergrasshill, Co. Cork.


Watergrasshill is a thriving village, which has developed substantially in the past due to its proximity to Cork city.  The village is situated on the main Cork-Dublin Road, the N8, just 14kms north of the city and 8kms south of Rathcormac.  The completion of the Watergrasshill bypass has further contributed to the village’s unprecedented development recently.

Watergrasshill is one of the largest villages in the area and offers a range of services to local residents, enabling many day-to-day activities to be carried out in the village, eliminating many longer journeys to more urban locations.  

Rejuvenation of the village core has begun following the completion of the bypass.  Watergrasshill enjoys excellent road-based transport connections due to its prime location near the M8.  The village now enjoys a more advantageous location because of the bypass, which has effectively relieved traffic congestion and removed unnecessary traffic through the village.  Given its proximity to Cork city, Cork County Council believes Watergrasshill is in an ideal location for a park-and-ride facility for commuters travelling to the city.  This is an ideal opportunity to purchase this excellent development site and take advantage of current market trends.


The development will comprise 6 Retail Units ranging in size from 45m2 to 200m2 and 16 Apartments located on the 1st and 2nd Floors and ranging in size from 55m2 for a 1-bedroom Apartment and up to 90m2 for a 2-bedroom Apartment.  All Apartments have private balconies and access to communal roof gardens located on the First & Second Floors.  Parking is provided in an underground car park with lift access to all floors.  The development is complemented with landscaped gardens, integrated seating, water feature and a playground.
