Reply To: Grafton Street, Dublin
There are lots of things in the scheme of course, covering everything from use to shopfronts to signage etc. All very laudable of course but probably without any real interest in enforcing it in the current environment. Do Charity Shops pay rates?
At a recent event organised by Dublin City Architects to discuss creating the high quality work environments of the future in Dublin, some of the key points that arose were high quality and well maintained public realm, a vibrant and attractive street life, curating uses on streets to stimulate the right kind of mix and brand for the area, promoting design and innovation in shops and business etc. All something that I would hope to see on show on Grafton Street.
