North Dublin City to get Legal Quarter
The Taoiseach is considering a proposal for a designated legal quarter. The area would be North of the Four Courts, South of Kings Inns and encompass the Law Society and Green Street Courthouse.

The proposal, which has the support of the Minister for Justice provides tax incentives similar to those in the Hub and aims at attracting investment in more court buildings and facilities.

This could become quite an attraction if we can persuade the beaks and barristers to hoof it from bar to bar (so to speak) in their horsehair and silks.

Perhaps this could attract the necessary cash to renovate Henrietta Steet to it past glory. It a logical entension of the Kings Inn.

Plan for designated 'legal quarter'

THE Courts Service has proposed to Dublin City Council that the area bounded by Kings' Inns and the city's quays be designated a legal quarter.

Given the high concentration of court houses and related legal services, the Courts Service says the creation of a legal quarter will result in many benefits, including a more efficient and accessible legal system, spin-off benefits for the local community and enhanced competitiveness for the economy.

A spokesman for the Courts Service said a feasibility study on the plan had been commissioned.

Ongoing discussions with the City Council on the proposal are also taking place, the Courts Service spokesman said.

I agree with them,

There is a large market to be sated, and given the bucks that most barristers and major legal practices have it would definitely have a higher than average chance of delivering good architecture.

It is only a pity it wasn't done before some of the recent major deals were done in the South Docklands.
