In recent years, across Ireland and elsewhere, living trends have changed. With traffic congestion, long commutes, and feelings of isolation, new developments have been increasingly concentrated in cities - rather than in suburban or industrial areas.
Furthermore, people are seeing the benefit of living and working within a more compact area. The benefits include
- Shorter commutes
- No need for a car
- Proximity of amenities
- Close-knit community
- Diversity and inclusivity
- Culture and recreation Georgian
Limerick was at one point considered the pinnacle of urban living. Now, people are returning to that model, and reimagining it for a new generation.
The living cities initiative provides tax based financial incentives to people who wish to convert/refurbish buildings in the Georgian Neighbourhood. For more information about the Living City Initiative click here.
