Re: Re: Dublin skyline
Drumcondra’s two up two downs are not high or even medium density. They are low density, especially for an area within walking distance on the city centre.
Look at the two large blocks just north west of Drumcondra railway station in the image linked. There’s roughly 48 dwellings in all that space. I calculate that to be no more than 200 people, and that’s assuming 2 occupants to each bedroom-very generous IMO.
The blocks comprise a narrow ring of dwellings around a large area of back gardens! This stuff has to go to make better use of the land. Pan slightly north to see apartments, does anyone know if these were built on infill or were houses demolished to make way for them?
