THE chairman of the Limerick Twenty Thirty company believes the job creation programme will outstrip its target of 12,000 new roles.Businessman Denis Brosnan was speaking after work finally got underway at the Gardens International site on Henry Street, a key plank of the transformational programme, which aims to deliver at least 5,000 new city centre jobs as part of this in the next decade.
Builders this Tuesday moved into the Gardens International site in Henry Street, which for the last seven years has stood incomplete and idle, a reminder of the recession Ireland faced.
Having put a €17.6m contract in place with JJ Rhatigan’s builders, there are high hopes the Gardens International scheme in Henry Street – formerly known as the Hanging Gardens – will be ready for occupation by late next year.
More than 150 construction workers are set to be employed, while the offices once complete will have the capacity to house 750 jobs.
