Reply To: trinity and nassau street
So, this was discussed in the times today, it makes it sound very nice, some buildings, but, in return, views of the cricket pitch.
it is hard to see how this would work in practice, if the buildings have any depth the views will be narrow slices, maybe the buildings could have triangular footprints, or, even better, the development might create viewing platforms back from the current line of the wall and rail.
the article also appears to confirm that the dcc have indicated that they won’t allow the planned demolishions on pearse street which is good. also, if, as is possible, coach parking is moved to pearse street, tcd will be glad of edwarding shopfronts, they will be able to lease them out to carrols, blarney woolen mills and so on.
