Don't think i'd agree... I think the U2 site is one of the more attractive sites i've come across... nice, long, slender geometry. Its almost begging to stretch across and form the pedestrian connection to the Point Village!!
(On the DDDA map i have, there is proposed, a 16m wide pedestrian only street of the PV - which begins directly across the river from the u2 tower, and runs to Sheriff street at the north. The LUAS stop will be midway up this new street. You can make out where the street would start on Peter Fitzs image above... directly to the right of the 4 pitched roof building)
Anyway, does nobody at all know the nature of the buildings on the larger site??? Heading home for a few days and i may take a trip to the big city itself. Do you think the builders on site would be willing to divulge any information about the grand plan for the area?
