Re: Re: Dunne vs the nimbys
“DCC need to make a strategic decision & stop this random high rise nonsense.”
I completely agree that DCC have dropped the ball big time w.r.t. developing a coherent plan for high rise development, but in the absence of such a plan, it’s not like Dublin has become over run with inappropriate high rise. There’ve been unsuitable proposals (Thomas St, Donnybrook etc) but these were rejected.
And can we all stop using the argument for the “docklands” as a panacea for high rise. Where exactly in the South Docks can high rise be accommodated at this stage? Simmilarly the North Docks as the approved plans stand aren’t exactly awash with high rise.
Maybe we should just accept that high rise (for arguments sake 50m +) is just not suitable for Dublin. At. All.
