Formerly the Zanzibar bar and nightclub, the site forms part of the historical fabric of the Quays which over time had fallen into disrepair and lay vacant for a number of years. Prior to commencement it was the only unused premises on Ormond Quay Lower, between the Millennium Bridge and Ha’penny Bridge. The site extends from Ormond Quay Lower to the South and Strand Street Great to the North and is bound to the East and West by existing structures.
The project saw the refurbishment of the Protected Façade and interior of the existing Georgian Structures looking onto the quays in line with best practice and the provision of a new bar and eatery. An existing archway accessed from the Quays is utilised as the main entry point to a spectacular foyer serving a new 160-Bedroom Aparthotel which will extend and provide a much-required facelift to Strand Street Great.
Project completed in the 4th quarter of 2020.
