Quote "Sorry to bring this up again, but does anyone have any updates?"
There is a tendency amongst Irish developers to propose a tall building as a bargaining tool in situations where it is difficult to secure planning consent from local government.
Often in negotiations with the planners they are 'prepared to omit' the tall structure in exchange for securing the other buildings.
Looking at the quality of and the contradictory nature of the renderings this was never taken seriously, least of all by its proponents.
If you are looking at tall structures in an Irish context, Cleary's Cork City Hall and the proposed U2 tower in Dublin's docklands are about where its at.
Galway could do with a few tall buildings, but when you see the words tall building in coonjunction with Diaspora museum (any museum) or theme park it's never going to happen.
