Re: Re: Academy St Development
This isn’t really the thread for it, but remember Dunnes may not want to stay put in MQ given their new store on Patrick Street. There was talk a few years back of putting another floor on. Perhaps now is the time for a major re-furb. Remember, the place was built in the midst of the last recession, so its not like OCP don’t have the nerve.
Do we need 4+ lanes of traffic on Patricks Quay going into 1 lane on a mostly pedestrianised Patrick Street now that the centre core is bypassed ?
Give 2 lanes back to the developer to extend centre to original footprint of original buildings ?
New facade and extra floor space for larger units is possible.
Its dying a slow death on the mall side and with Opera Avenue etc thats wher the footfall is going to be.
