is this the one you mean? i actually meant the smaller one across the road, with two arches on ground floor and red doors, pitched top... can't find an image
Yup, that's the one I was talking about; but I think I know the one you mean too - is it the one visible along the length of Cook St.? I think it also has the steps leading to a 1st floor entrance - for the old boat-house back when the South Mall was a waterway, or so I'm told.
Some minor graffiti appeared over the weekend on the front of the building pictured above; though signed off with: "Sorry for this, it's a beautiful building". Hahahah. Well, at least the little vandals have good taste!
Incidentally, it looks like a vista from Patrick St. to Shandon steeple will be opened up by the widened "Opera Avenue" (Faulkner's Lane!!!). Plus, unless my eyes are deceiving me, the width of the lane won't be constant. I know some of you might see that as a negative, I see it as a bit plus.
Given this is likely to be a fairly dull, large modern glass 'n' cladding cuboid (I'd love to be proved wrong), anything which breaks the monotony of those large, flat, featureless surfaces - in particular strong vertical lines - is a plus.
