Re: Re: Dublin skyline
This image seems to be the standard for new apartment developments in Dublin- 13-ish-storey ‘landmark’ block, surrounded by mediocre fiveish-storey ones. Santry Cross, Belgard Square, even Charlotte Quay.
My problem with these is that they do nothing to address the higher densities we need. After all, a slender 14-storey building is just two small seven storey blocks on top of each other. Adding an extra floor or two over the low-rise element of all these would achieve higher densities than the inclusion of the towers, at a much cheaper cost I’m sure.
