Don’t worry about the Adelaide RD building it is far from historic, an orange plastic curtainwalled horror on an elevated site.
Being a DIT alumni I too wish that my ex-college was on a single campus. THere is also quite a bit of land on the aungier st site for redevelopment which would add a lttle more critical mass. Do the National archives really need to be where they are? That site could easily accomodate Mountjoy Sq which is I think the most isolated of all the DITs.
I can’t ever see Grangegorman happening, if the funds wern’t found in 2000 they won’t be found for quite a while to come. It would be much more realistic for the DIT to convert their surface carparks at Bolton St and Aungier St and develop the back of Kevin St.
