The tower blocks, the transport works!
you won’t get middle income people to raise families in tower blocks unless you ‘spoil’ them ! you need parks (proper one) schools , a new hospital. nice old buildings restored, sports facilities ,gyms … the list is endless. And if you don’t get middle income families to raise their children in these tower blocks (that WILL come), it won’t work well. You could either have these block filled with immigrants which means riots of some description in the future. Or a dead town with people completely retiring into their world at night. This happens in la defense and as a consequence is expremely dangerous at night. Or the IFSC on a small city scale. Which is what swords WILL turn into.
Tower blocks can be great but like everything else they need to be done properly . However a tower block is a bigger bet.
It not unrealistic to expect housing for 150 thousand people to be added , over a thirty year period. Thats cork. And because of the airports exclusion zone most of this will need to be squeezed in around swords.
