Re: Re: Developments in Cork
The article dealt with the high level of vacant buildings on St. Patrick Street/Grand Parade and in the Merchants Quay centre and listed the (well-known) redevelopment issues here. Although, the eason’s one was a new one to me.
It made the very sensible suggestion that at all sites where buildings are empty awaiting redevelopment, e.g. Academy Street, Dunnes, Capitol, signs be erected detailing the plans for the site- to assure residents and tourists alike that this isn’t just an abandoned site; that there’s something ‘exciting’ going to happen here.
