Re: Re: Arnotts
Those of you interested in this development might wish to have a look at the model on display in DCC at the moment. From what i can see the development invloves demolishing a whole section of the existing Arnotts store, not just the 1960s addition but the Edwardian section west of the tower. Also on the Abbey Street side Chapters book store also seems to have gone along with the remaining buildings cornering Upper Liffey Street including ‘aul Hector Greys (its a sad day for Dublin). Some of the new linking street look very narrow, particularly the Abbey Street links. Im not sure they’ll make such nice places. Also would like to see changes to the Pennys facade to fit in better with the GPO and Easons. One area thats not included (which I thought was) is the corner of Liffey Street and Henry Street. All the buildings at this corner are outside of the development area.
