Dublin Docks

Dublin Docks

Postby GregF » Wed Jan 31, 2001 4:55 pm

Anyone see the master plan for the north docks......What a yawn! .......only one tower of considerable height for a focal point and standing all alone like Liberty Hall..... the rest all low level .....too low for the width of the river and making no impact whatsoever. Overall very conservatively boring..... ZZZZzzzzzzzz..... and what a missed opportunity to do something radically outstanding.
Cheers DDDA and all involved .......what a boring grey bunch!

Terrible isnt it, the only area where something can be donw interesting without conservation lobbies and they opt for 7 storeys in height?.....

what a boring city Dublin of the 21st century will be.....

True, sadly true

Dublin will dribble away to the sea

thats what Frank McDonald reckons as well....

"Maximum building heights along the riverfront have been set at seven storeys, thus ensuring Dublin will 'dribble away into the bay', "
