Re: Re: Carlton Cinema Development
How common / big of a problem is this around the O’Connell street area?
Moore Street and O’Rahilly lane area primarily. It’s not really such a big problem provided the developer has done their homework, realizes its a brown field site and makes allowances in advance. I have been aware of this re Carlton site for years. The story as headlined is making news in a summer season when this is already long since known. A quick glance at Rocque’s 1756 map shows Moore Street as “Brick Lane” – in the 1730s Brick Lane would have of course been on the outskirts of the city, and the bricks produced here would have been used for Henrietta Street.
Hope this is of help – welcome to the site 🙂
