Re: Re: 11 storey in Donnybrook!
It was only a matter of time. It’s not even light industrial but any sort of business which requires any sort of footprint is likely to be under severe presure given the current value of land in “prestige” areas like this. Dunno, I like a bit of variety in my suburbs; a mono-culture of cafes/restaurants, fancy foodhalls and offices bores me a bit. A few people working in greasy overalls adds a bit of character.
I also notice it looks like the triangle of land across the road next to the Dodder behind the wesley club house is being cleared. Looks like it’s being prepared for development.
On the subject of Eglington Rd., at the other end near the junction with Sandford Rd/Milltown Rd there’s a huge victorian house on a huge site which is semi-derelict. The garden is perfectly maintained, the gate is locked with a padlock but the windows are boarded up. It’s been like this for years. I wonder what’s going on there?
