Cork Simon Community is set to build dozens of homes in Cork City.
The Echo report that the Cork charity has been granted provisional planning permission for a residential development at the site of a former car dealership on Alfred Street and Railway Street.
The planning application consists of 78 apartments which will be a mix of one bed, two bed and studio apartments, with a cafe and retail unit also included.
