Cork has a population of 300,000 in its metropolitan area, with almost double that number of people living within a 60km commute of the city. Cork is a key driver of regional economic activity in Ireland with an international reputation as a centre for the development of technologies that have global strategic importance.


The location of Navigation Square is designed to direct views across the River Lee and facilitate a degree of privacy between the new buildings and neighbouring properties. Respecting the location’s history and heritage, the development creates a new public space which strengthens the connection between Cork’s quays and the city centre.
