Reply To: ILAC centre
Its good news about the ILAC. Its renovation is long over due. Lets hope they opt for something radical and make better use of the vast amount of space they occupy. For some reason though I think development only affect one of the malls… am I right?
As for Hawkins House… I think the observation about planning difficulties in getting the same amount of space is probably spot on! The drawing of what it will look like seem okay but I would much rather see this type of building further down the river in DDDAland. I say tear it down and learn a lesson. The same goes for the nasty monstrosities surrounding it.
Turn the whole area into an extension of Temple Bar with narrow streets and set piece architecture… a new arthouse cinema to replace the Screen, maybe even a theatre
