JCD understands that the key element of creating the right retail environment is location. With forward-thinking retail and service mixes, each location is meticulously planned to create an inviting atmosphere.

We work closely with our international retailers to gain a thorough understanding of their needs in order to help them respond to a rapidly changing environment. Our dedicated team insist on a level of finish and detail which properly reflects and enhances the products our customers are selling.

Since demographics are only matched when like-minded, quality brands come together, JCD searches for quality, international brands that will enhance one another. It is for this reason DFS, the UK’s largest quality sofa retailer, occupies close to 20,000 sq ft in the City Gate Park development alongside Starbucks, the American global coffee company, being the anchor food outlet.

Energie Fitness, Irelands’ leading fitness club operator, has just opened a €1million state of the art gym stretching over another 12,000 sq ft.

The above represents the most significant retail transactions in Cork in a number of years with these high profile retailers being a first for the region.
