Re: Re: Dublin skyline
AndrewP – Your comment that the addition of one extra floor rather to the standard 4-6 story block would have a vastly more signmificant impact than peppering of isolated point blocks across the city is right on the money.
The development looks interesting. Certainly of more considerable density and retaining a more traditional street scape that is normally found this far from ‘town’ (certainly on that side). The landscaping on the canal ceratinly looks promising and starts to further bring together a linear park of considerable quality strectching from Spencer Dock West. I am a little concerned at the anoubt of open / plaza space. Generally to be supported of course but I would wonder does the street layout and density support such a large space. Look Smithfiled for example.
Anyway, must walk the Canal next time I’m home.
