Re: Re: Carlton Cinema Development
August is the expected time for a decision.
Meanwhile, as mentioned, the Royal Dublin Hotel has been demolished (with the exception of its southernmost bay to help support No. 42) in anticipation of the construction of a new office block to rehouse Dublin Bus’s head office. This part of the project, which slipped neatly under the radar, looks set to go ahead as it was part of a site swap with Dublin Bus. I’ve yet to see plans for this building, though I think it already has approval (?).
There are doubts that the Bord will approve the Carlton remounting, while the new opening into O’Connell Street may morph into an actual street rather than the proposed ‘public space’.
