The scheme is located over 2 No. sites on Moore Lane and Moore Street, respectively, on opposite sides of a City block occupied by Jurys Inn and other commercial uses (the block is bounded by Parnell Street to the north, O'Rahilly Parade to the south, Moore Lane to the east and Moore Street to the west).

The sites are excellently serviced by public transport by reason of their central location. Importantly, the proposed Luas Cross City Project includes a planned stop on Parnell Street, opposite the Moore Lane site.

The development comprises, inter alia, the provision of a 100 No. bedroom hotel (with 6 No. meeting rooms), retail unit, and public bar / licensed restaurant, with a total gross floor area of 4,329 sq m over the two sites (4,042 sq m gross floor area on Moore Lane and 287 sq m on Moore Street).

The Moore Street element of the hotel use will be operationally (but not physically) linked to the Moore Lane site.

The development will significantly improve the character of the area by developing the long-vacant, brownfield sites in the centre of the city.
