Re: Re: Developments in Cork
I don’t think it’s the scale that’s the problem, I don’t have any problem with height. It’s just the blandness and the desire to be the cheapest that’s humanly possible.
Oh its not so bad, alot better than the origianl proposal which was HORRIFIC, I nearly got sick when I saw it. And I do think it is the scale which is the problem. Patrick St. elevation needs to be scaled way back, Grand Parade slightly, however that could be done, while the facade alongside the English Market is admittedly just plain unacceptable, there was a render of it on the examiner back along. It is basically a blank cladded wall, rising way above the market, and totally ruining all views of it. These guys need their heads screwed on if they think they can get away with that.
