if built merchant’s gate would be quite tall. it would be taller than anything we have right now in dublin. i heard someone say 19 storeys at 64 meters… anything approved at that height or higher seems to be on hold. i don’t know why. why aren’t they built shortly after approval? why all the delays i wonder?

Merchant’s Gate is going on a site which was occupied by a Brickyard up until about a month ago, it’s also surrounded on two sides by road works which are widening East Wall road in preperation for the Port Tunnel. These works will take up two Q2 ’06 so I wouldn’t be expecting any movement on Merchants Gate before then.

It took 20 years of landbanking to acquire the whole site. With the movement in property prices in generally (and especially East Wall) I’m sure the developers are happy to take their time.
