Ah! I was wondering when an application was going to be made on that site! Great site opposite the renewed Bective, with just crap on it at the moment (single storey light industrial shite)… That said 11 floors is far too greedy imo – permitting such a scheme would make Jim Tully’s decision to let thru the nearby Eglinton House look wise 😮
(see Destruction of Dublin).

11 floors is a greedy gambit that wont work; watch for a slew of objections to come in from places such as the adjacent Georgian facsimilae residential Eglinton Square – which is of course where a certain former city architect lives. Ah the irony 🙂

Ah yes Eglinton House – the straw that broke the camel’s back and led to An Bord Pleanala’s establishment. I find your description of a garage and mechanics as “shite” quite amusing. If they go where will one feed one’s SUV and get it fixed after a cyclist dents it with his head? But it’s a fine site with good potential. As an aside has anything been lodged for the other Donnybrook site at the fire station where a 26 storey tower was proposed a few years ago? – that truly would have been one for the Dublin vista thread. The subject site of the current discussion is the triangle in the right foreground if i’m not mistaken
