I'd be very surprised if this ever happens - should have been done a decade ago when the property prices of their old sites would have gone a long way to paying for it

Not as far as I know - and if they did, NAMA would probably own them now anyway ;)

Seems to be some life in it yet – just noted on the Pleanala website that 4 appeals have been lodged against a planning scheme adopted by DCC… http://www.pleanala.ie/news/ZD2005.htm

The SDZ application for Grangegorman is approved by An Bord Pleanala subject to a number of conditions:

Read the Board's verdict here http://www.pleanala.ie/news/ZD2005/ZD2005.htm

A good news story.

Great news....hopefully this can proceed apace. Its a little bitter sweet for me....when I was in DIT back in 2001 they were talking about this project be ready to proceed, indeed I'd been reading about it since the late 1990s. Of course it wasn't to be, but just think, this could have self financed if DIT had sold their existing buildings at the height of the boom. That the didn't is a reflection of just how inefficient and "political" DIT is as an instution!

On the decision itself......well quelle surprize....ABP allow a huge scheme to sail through but selectively subtract ALL the elements that could be termed highrise. Anybody who tries to maintain that they don't have a certain agenda is deluded!

The pace of work at Grangegorman is picking up. A great aerial photograph of the site from only a matter of weeks ago - mid-January 2014.

The DIT campus and new Luas line could inject so much more life into this awkwardly located northside district and would draw immediate northside suburbs like Phibsboro and Drumcondra closer to the city proper. At present, there's just a gaping hole between the North Circular Rd and O'Connell St, the latter of which will never credibly develop until it has a viable hinterland.

If only there was some way of exorcising Dublin Bus from Broadstone.
