Brian ArthurWork has begun on the first of three Limerick 2030 projects which will see the inner city transformed into a living and working city centre.Branded as the largest commercial property development programme outside of the capital the first Limerick 2030 project will see 100,000 sq ft of offices built on Henry Street. The Gardens International Office is the first speculative build under the programme, which overall will see over €500m worth of investment in creating state-of-the-art office, retail, residential, education and enterprise space in Limerick.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The wider programme is aimed at attracting 5,000 new jobs in Limerick over the next five years, with ‘The Gardens’ building set to accommodate 750 posts and support 150 jobs during construction. Work on the project began on Tuesday, with a predicted completion date of late 2018.Limerick 2030 Chairman Denis Brosnan said: “This is a very important day for Limerick 2030, for Limerick and the wider region. This will be the catalyst for a new era of growth for Limerick as this is the first in a wider programme that is going to transform Limerick into a dynamic living and working city capable of competing with the leading destinations in Europe for inward investment.“Limerick, with high-end projects like this, will be the best placed and most competitive English speaking city in the EU for inward investment. We will have state-of-the-art space in a city that has been revitalised over the last three years or so but remains an extremely cost-effective location for operating international business in and from.”Said Conn Murray Chief Executive of Limerick City and County Council: “We have already seen significant job creation and over €1.3 billion invested in Limerick over the last three years with the fastest growing employment rate in the country. The Gardens will now trigger a new wider programme of investment in infrastructure to bring that record period in Limerick to another level.“Limerick is rejuvenated, it is attracting a lot of international attention and now we will be able to offer what FDI and indigenous investors mostly look for – inner city locations in a vibrant city where people can work and, indeed, live. This will be a landmark project for Limerick and in time we will look back on it as pivotal moment for the city and region.”The Henry Street site was part constructed during the boom but has remained a shell development since work ceased there several years ago. The five-floor development will be suitable for a range of uses and will be Limerick’s first city centre LEED Gold certified office scheme.The new design comes complete with a structural glazed facade to provide a high level of environmental control within the office space, minimizing solar gain and reducing imposed air-handling energy requirements. It also includes automated fully glazed entrance doors, natural stone flooring, a turnstile security system, car parking spaces, cycle bays and other services.

It was minutes before tip-off, and across the chest of every SU player read in orange lettering “#NotAgainSU.” The student-led protests against the recent hate acts on campus started two weeks prior in the Barnes Center at The Arch and had manifested on Jim Boeheim Court. Both Syracuse (3-1, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) and Cornell (1-4) warmed up ahead of the Battle of the Boeheims — the annual contest and third-straight SU win between Orange head coach Jim Boeheim and his two sons, SU’s Buddy and Cornell’s Jimmy. A few hundred yards from the Dome, students and administrators piled into Hendricks Chapel for a community forum. The black T-shirts represented the dichotomy of each player’s current position: Concerned student taking stock of their campus or basketball player on the school’s most important team.After a color guard carried the flag off the court, SU starters lifted the black material over their heads. With protests and an impending forum in Hendricks Chapel, the players decided they’d be both. “When I brought it up everyone really bought in,” forward Elijah Hughes said, “It was something we decided to do together.” AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe plan started last night in the team hotel. Hughes, who’d been following the movement outside of practice and games, connected with one of the #NotAgainSU members and “put his thoughts out” on the recent hate crimes that have circulated the recent news cycle. Hughes eventually settled on the idea of the T-shirts, and pitched the idea to the team during a meeting. Freshman forward Quincy Guerrier, a Canadian-native who arrived on campus in May, said the team bought in immediately. The movement and basketball team had crossed over before Wednesday night. Ahead of Syracuse’s Nov. 13 win over Colgate, SU’s student section, Otto’s Army, requested all students skip the game in solidarity with the then-early protests occurring in the Barnes Center. Students came anyway. Postgame, Boeheim said comments that angered the protestors. When Boeheim, Buddy and Hughes attended the Barnes Center sit-in on Nov. 16, Boeheim was confronted and the students rejected the pizza he offered them. Through it all, Buddy, Hughes and most of the players stayed quiet. Said Guerrier after the Cornell meeting: “It’s kind of hard for everyone on campus right now.”“I’m trying to not really focus on it, I’m trying to focus on school,” he said “… I’m more aware now.”They wanted to focus on their games, Guerrier said, but the news cycle dictated otherwise. Guerrier and other players had class canceled by professors after a white supremacist manifesto was posted on a forum on GreekRank.com.As other students stayed in dorms and contemplated attending classes that weren’t rescheduled, NBA veteran and SU alum Dion Waiters visited Orange players in their apartment and played Madden, Hughes said. But the campus movement swirled and amid counter-scheduled town halls and impending finals, the players couldn’t avoid #NotAgainSU.“I thought it was a good idea,” Boeheim said. “Everybody in the University thought it was a good idea.” A few hundred yards from the Dome court, students and administrators discussed the movement’s demands in Hendricks. When Syracuse Chancellor Kent Syverud refused to sign a list of requests, protestors filed out of Hendricks and into the cold night. Meanwhile, fans in the student section chanted for Jimmy to air-ball a free throw.“We can do what we can,” Hughes said. “It’s hard cause at the end of the day we’re 18-, 19-, 20-year-old kids. If you can bring the school together in any way we’re going to try to.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
