Plans for a new 300 million euro development in an area of Galway city have been given the green light.
The site will include hundreds of apartments, a hotel, restaurants, and a cinema.
The "Augustine Hill" development is located just beside the train station in Galway - and is within a five-minute walk of Eyre Square.
The plans approved by Galway City Council are a scaled-down version of the original proposals by developer Edward Capital.
There'll be over 400 residential units, a 180-bed hotel, a cinema, restaurants and shops - with 11 new fully pedestrianised streets and 4 large public plazas.
The city council's approval comes with over 50 conations attached relating to the scale and density of the project.
Galway Chamber has welcomed it as a big leap forward for the sustainable regeneration of Galway
It's estimated the project will support over 600 jobs during the six-year period of its construction - and deliver a boost of 80 million euro to the exchequer.
