Re: Re: A New Knowledge Campus for the Customs House Area
From this vantage point it looks all very nice. But you try and navigate down there as a pedestrian, amongst all the traffic on Amiens Street, with the LUAS getting in the way and trying to sneak around the large ‘water feature’. It is no fun at all and doesn’t encourage someone to go back either.
The thing to remember is that startups needs this location. It is the only place in Dublin served with transport to make it accessible from all directions. By definition, the more access to transport a small startup has, the more chance that the rich investor from the US or Japan is going to drop by the office at some stage, on his whistle stop tour through Dublin city.
