This three storey building proposes a mix of commercial and residential accommodation at Market Square Ballina. Existing three-storey period buildings on Pearse Street are repaired and renewed with all modifications having regard to conservation of these period buildings and the requirement to accommodate modern retail outlets and regulations. The project helps the Urban renewal and revitalisation of a substantial town centre infill site. It enhances commercial activity in the town centre and consolidates retail development in the town core as required by Urban District Council policy and Department of the Environment guidelines. The development facilitates, enhances and promotes the redevelopment of the Market Square area and Market Square itself. The existing streetscapes on Pearse Street and Market Square will be substantially enhanced and consolidated.
