I definitely think College Green should be made a pedestrian space. The Bank of Ireland and Trinity College West front are very important buildings, but their gravity cannot be appreciated. This could be a popular tourist space. I think access from Dame Street could be a good idea, so without encouraging through traffic, the area stay bustling.
As for Blackhall Place, I can’t say I know the area too well, but I know the Law Society headquarters and that deserves more attention. What happened with the Central Bank was a disgrace, but that’s what happens when you have so many nightclubs nearby.
