Re: Re: Academy St Development
Thanks for the images.
It seems to be coming together nicely. I think, once the Patrick Street facade emerges, we’ll see that it was a mistake to remove the old Examiner Office building. It’ll be great to view the Crawford through ( a now widened ) Faulkner’s Lane.
The Patrick Street side of Dunnes looks impressive, but the side streets and rear of the Dunnes development is shaping up to be predictably awful. Activity on these streets is going to be limited given the lack of shopfronts.
Should all those streets as far as the river now be pedestrianised apart from deliveries.They are quite narrow and limited parking.It would really improve that part of the city.The lane between the new Dunnes and The Savoy seems like a lost opportunity to get some life and light into that lane.
