CORK CITY IS set to build higher after An Bord Pleanála upheld planning permission granted by the council for the development of the €20 million 15-storey Prism building.

Located close to Parnell Bus Station, the planned development will encompass 60,000 sq ft of office space and is set to create more than 100 jobs during construction.

Tower Holdings Ltd welcomed the decision to give a green light to its development, which had been opposed by groups such as An Taisce.
