Re: Re: Carlton Cinema Development
Yep. Just to be clear, the proposed Carlton redevelopment is a world away from the dinky shopping mall first proposed ten years ago, and different again to that of two years ago. It is now approaching Arnotts proportions. By no means a bad thing, but what is of concern is that the city is increasingly being viewed by developers in terms of blocks. Extraordinarily, in quiet 1970’s style, this consortium now own virtually all of Upper O’Connell Street west – ‘Carlton’ is a misnomer now.
What is equally of concern is that DCC have recently published a Development Brief specific to the regeneration of the Carlton site that conveniently endorses baffling height at precisely the locations proposed by the developers. You couldn’t make it up.
Agreed a new street with well-designed corners is welcome mid-way on Upper west.
