Appraisal

Significant example of a warehouse from the late nineteenth century. Although this building has been modified, it retains original fabric, as well as its scale and form generally unaltered. Contributes positively to the street in terms of character and function. Important also due to its location on one of the main commercial streets of Cork city, and as one of a group of surviving industrial buildings.
