I don’t see why they changed the carlton facade proposal from the second incarnation, as still seen (for the time being) on http://www.dublincentral.ie. I know setbacks are none too popular on archiseek, but its gotta be better than that boxy shite

To answer my own question, it’s because of this condition from ABP:

12. Redesign the buildings to each side of the entrance from O’Connell Street to the new street to provide a more composed treatment, generally using a limited and traditional palette of materials, paying appropriate respect to the relocated Carlton facade. The height of the Carlton/new department store may be of a scale to reflect its increased significance

They were asked for shite so they gave shite. What a dumb condition.
