Limerick City & County Council
Newenham Mulligan & Associates
These new homes have been built on a brownfield site close to Limerick city centre comprising of 57 units for elderly residents (1 and 2 bed apartments and 2-bed houses) with the remainder (24) being family homes (3 bedroom).
The remaining buildings of the clothing factory have been incorporated into the development for use as apartments and a community centre.
The project included the delicate restoration and conservation work to the existing historical clothing factory. The factory which opened in 1853 became the biggest clothing manufacturer in the world, supplying military uniforms to the British Army, the Canadian Volunteer Militia and to the Confederates in the American Civil War.
