Re: Re: Cut Stone Buildings in Cork
Here is a shot of the Old Albert Quay railway terminus building (the West Cork line). Behind was the station platform…which was recently demolished and re-developed into enterprise units for Enterprise Ireland. The terminus building was extensively refurbished and looks quite well. Given its prominent position next to City Hall and its complimentary style, I always thought it would have made a good ‘Mansion House’ equivalent for the Mayor of Cork.
And this is a shot looking at the building from behind. The new Enterprise Ireland building is very much a Scott Tallon Walker design. A bit too gray for some, and I still can’t decide whether I like it or not. The Eglinton Street tower (The Elysian!) is being constructed behind the EI building.
