Permission granted for 100-bed nursing home and 47 independent living units at multi-million euro site in Cork

Cork City Council has approved a new 100 bed care home and 47 independent units in a suburb of Cork.

The project is to be built on the multi-million euro Clarkes Hill site in Rochestown and will consist of the residential building, several terraced houses and apartments.

The nursing home can accommodate up to 100 residents, while there will be 20 houses and 27 apartments focused on independent living.

The apartments will be distributed over two and three-story buildings, including the associated work such as a parking lot, solar panels and a garbage dump.

The prime site spans 7.2 acres and is located on the north end of Clarkes Hill near Rochestown Road.

It was recently sold to Aperee Living Ltd, which outbid other nursing home developers for 4.75 million euros.

Founded in 2019, the group already operates homes in Churchtown, North Cork, and Tralee, Co. Kerry.

Both houses are “designed to enable environments in which each individual can maintain their independence in a way that they would at home,” it says on their website.

They say they have “a strong community focus, great relationships with local health professionals, and strong visionary management”.
