I was down there at the weekend - the whole site is boarded up and there was a crane on site. There was a security guard there so i couldn't get a closer look and they were working on the bridge there so i couldn't dally to look in at what was going on. Seems to be in full swing, i heard an excavator inside..

Monte - when that burnt out shed is gone, give it six years.
YOU CAN actually make out the size of the apartments in Alto. Compare the lift door to the rest.. 30ft containers all the way up.

It's a really tight space they are working in and it's been ineteresting watching the build. I work just beside it. You can't miss the big yellow container as it goes up florr by floor. I think it's alta vetro or alta vista?

It looks a lot bulkier in the photo than one would think possible, for such a small site. Last time I looked at that tiny site I was amazed that they were planning a building of that height with such a small footprint.

When is the start date for construction? is it in the next few weeks?
It looks alright from what I can see. I'm personally delighted that its an office development. I've read too much reports of soaring demand for Dublin office space to be less than a lttle worried about excessive inflation of office rents. Coupled with the office-led redevelopment of the Burlington and a large office compnent of the IGB revamp, that should cool any demand pressures in the commercial property market.
The only quibble I'd have is with the anttenna thing they have sticking out of it. it looks a bit dated, a restyle would fit better with the rest of the building.

Pepsi, i think this is the 'block' you are referring to. According to other posters above this is indeed suppose to be the Alto Vetro building

Noodles your pics are great. Worth noting, if you can picture it, but the Point Village tower and U2 tower will be well over twice the height of the lift shaft you have pictured there;)

Anyone notice the absence of curves in the docklands and adjacent developments? The new buildings are mostly great but all flat edges- as are all the planned developments. I'm not asking for a gherkin, but...
lots of Docklands photos taken today ;http://www.flickr.com/photos/58086761@N00/sets/72157600052222012/

Go to oms.ie, click on portfolio, then on View Projects by type, then on offices and then Sir John Rogersons Quay.Sorry for level of detail but I can't copy and past the image.
See Vertigo? U2 tower thread for more details on the dispute.
