Re: Re: Alto Vetro, grand canal docks, dublin
At least they have something.
I know, I know, I know – height isn’t everything. Like it or not though, it is a symbol of a modern city, of progress, and of success. I recognize that in the midst of one of the deepest recessions Ireland’s ever seen, building skyscrapers isn’t really what the city should focus on.
However, what I will say, is that I really don’t understand why the city constantly fought any high rise development during the boom years, and why getting a building, which is only 57 meters high, is seen as a triumph for the Dublin high-rise movement.
Maybe now high rise should get built, simply for the fact that it is the cheapest time to build. Prepare for the future?
