Reply To: Shels potential new stadium
club owners pocket cash and buy a yacht…. ground share occurs ad infinitum….
I wonder where we’ve seen that before?!! Although it looks like theyâ€™re all at ground redevelopment, bar Shamrock Rovers!
There are â€œplans by Albion Properties to totally (re)develop the shopping centre, construct residential apartment blocks up to nine storeys in height and provide a new 400-seater spectator stand at Dalymount Park football stadium.â€
Thereâ€™s a model of the proposal in the Civic Offices foyer. I only had a quick look at it, but Iâ€™ve been left with the distinct impression that it’s not much better than whatâ€™s there already. The sole architectural element that I remember vividly was the use of dark-tinted glazing similar to the over-scaled piece of work coming to completion on Capel Street.
No need to fear though; the existing Brutalist-style office block wonâ€™t be touched!
There was no architectâ€™s name attached to the model, always reassuring!
