Re: Re: Dublin Fruit Market
I agree, there’s almost nothing in this area worth saving. I can’t see a problem with that proposal above, if it improves on the dump that’s already there. Where’s the loss exactly in removing buildings that are either derelict, or so undistinguished that they were mediocre even at the time they were built? And I don’t see the problem with going up a few storeys since we’re apparently living in the 21st century, when European capital cities generally don’t have one storey warehouses and two storey huts less than a mile from the city’s main street.
I think the attitude towards preservation is a bit extreme here sometimes. We should be focusing on improving the quays and preserving Georgian Dublin, not on dreck like this area.
