Reply To: 32-floor building planned for Dublin
“Thus far not one credible high-rise building has emerged in Dublin”
Very few high-rise buildings of any kind have emerged in Dublin or anywhere else in Ireland recently, mostly because of the whinging and whining that goes on among conservationists anytime any proposal is made no matter what the quality. They see the words “high-rise” and the broken record is set in motion.
Developers have been reluctant to bother proposing even decent well-designed high-rise schemes because they don’t want the hassle from the likes of An Taisce and their ilk with their dictionary of buzz words and terms that they love to trot out (“overshadowing” being the most overused in my opinion) and the almost inevitable rejection of their plans as a result.
