A mall would draw people in, all right – during the day. O’Connell Street would become just another ‘high street’ (hate the term, but with all these UK multiples, what else do you call them?). And like Talbot/Mary Street would be deserted at night, apart from the odd tourist coming up to admire the Spike and probably getting knifed in the process.
O’Connell Street needs mixed uses that would give it life right into the night.
