Re: Re: Abandoned Schemes
Recently, less than you’d think. These come to mind:
Westgate near Heuston Station aparently had it’s tallest building, a 13 storey office tower, removed following consulation with palnners. However, the other half of the overall development was recently approved by DCC and contains a 32 storey apartment tower.
Gannon Homes had a 12 storey apartment tower removed from a housing development in Donaghmede.
Partenay’s 26 storey mixed-use tower in Donnybrook was refused by DCC.
Fabrizia Developments applied for permission for a large mixed-use development on Southbank road over four years ago, but in the absence of a decision by DCC has reapplied with a similar proposal, minus the thirty storey office tower.
Fusano Properties’ Smithfield Market is currently under construction with a 13 storey apartment tower at its centre. The foundations for this building reflect its originally approved height of 20 storeys (http://homepage.eircom.net/~istructeroi/news/news16/smithfield16.htm)
edit: It’s not a tall building, but the Wejcherts-designed Gaiety Centre has been approved by DCC for the second time, less two storeys, after a successful appeal against the original permission.
