Reply To: Has anyone a picture of the George’s Quay tower?
But the alternative to what was actually built there would almost certainly have been more of those awful 5 storey boxes that surround the towers, rather than just leaving it derelict. At least the towers are something to look at (whether you like or dislike them), and as proven here can generate discussion. Would more 5 storey boxes generate any discussion other than declarations af how terrible thay are?
I know I’m probably preaching to the converted here, but the IFSC extension has got to be one of the most depressing additions to the city of Dublin in recent years for the reasons mentioned above. A huge opportunity to do something worthwhile was wasted. Absolutely nothing stands out there, and now they want to do the same to the rest of the docks, and no doubt similar rubbish will be inflicted on the Cork and Waterford docklands on a smaller scale. If this is the case dereliction might be the better option, because at least it means it’ll be a blank canvass for some future generation with a bit more ambition and courage.
