Whoops – was just thinking, the ICS own the Blood Bank Building don’t they, the premises extend out into the Gothic original, so that’s what the IAP’s probably referring to.
But even then (to clutch at straws), instead of saying the refurbishment needs to be extended northwards to the ICS, it says “this refurbishment needs to be extended northwards to extend to the ICS, i.e. presumably to include it.
Just remembered from when I was in the older part before – there’s some fantastic views of O’ Cll St and Bridge from here, lovely interiors too with original fireplaces (the chimneys outside mustn’t be just ornamental then). I think there’s a couple of apartments on the top floors which must have the most dramatic views of the quays and river.
