Contracts which will advance the Fawaz Alhokair North Quay/Michael Street projects are set to be signed next week, The Munster Express understands.
The news, disclosed as we went to press, will take the €300 million-plus project a step closer to reality.
While An Bord Pleanála is currently handling the objections submitted to it regarding the North Quays project, a source told this newspaper that the development remains on a ‘full steam ahead’ footing.
Representatives of the Saudi Arabian group met with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar during his March 9th visit to Waterford, during which they were struck by his “superb commitment” to the delivery of the project.
