Rising Tide business centre's major expansion a boost for New Ross

People with business ideas, entrepreneurs or business owners working from home now have a choice of new office space to work from in New Ross thanks to the extension of the Rising Tide Business Centre on South Street.
The centre offers serviced offices in the heart of New Ross town at 35-37 South Street. Following a regeneration project by New Ross Properties, three heritage buildings have been transformed into a modern working environment suited to a range of office-based businesses.
Following major structural work in 2009, No. 35 South Street opened as the Rising Tide Business Centre under the auspices of the JFK Trust, with support from the Interreg IV and Wexford Local Development.
2014 saw the complete renovation of No.36 South Street and the installation of a Barron lift at the rear for disabled access. New Ross & District Chamber moved to No. 36 in January 2015.
In 2014, following the retirement of Drs Horan & Kelleher, New Ross Properties acquired No.37 South Street and renovation is under way to bring it up to the same standard as No.s 35 & 36.
Tom O Morchoe of New Ross Properties said: 'At a difficult time for property in general, the owners of New Ross Properties have given a vote of confidence in the regeneration of New Ross by creating a modern business centre in three heritage buildings that were seriously in need of refurbishment. The building work is a credit to both Dave Merrigan, the architect and Johann Hoff, the main contractor, and they have succeeded in sympathetically combining the conservation requirements with a practical end use.'
