I agree…I hope the Tara Street development gets the go ahead…..we need more distinctive buildings/landmarks for our capital. Afterall, it is the 21st century and we need symbols of our time. I’m all for conservation and restoration of our architectural past (don’t you dare put your greedy developers hand on it)….but when you have the likes of blank canvases such as the docks and insignificant and really run down areas of the city, give them the go ahead….build, build, build…of course once it is of a reasonably high standard. Belfast, Northern Ireland, despite their bigotry, bitterness and ‘backwardness’ is surpassing Dublin with the likes of the Waterfront Hall, the Odyssey Centre, etc…while we are still arguing over planning permission……the Dopes!
