Re: Re: Dun Laoghaire Baths
Couple of points:
– The previous comment on skyscrapper / tall buildings is really meaningless unless set in contect – even so Dublin has a greater need of density rather than tall buildings per say and I would argue that very tall buildings relative to the urban fabric of Dublin are out of context – needs a case by case review within context (love this word today) a more general urban policy
– While I am in favour of positive develeopment happy to conceed that Kevin Myers makes mainly good common sense in his article.
– On the building proposal itself I would be concenered re the height more more explicitly in that it seems to turn its back on the sea – what of something clean and modern like the De La Warr Pavillion. Would generally objecte to private housing being built on green open space.
