Re: Re: ‘Dutch Billys’
“Less threatened by development, but still in danger from neglect, is this fine little probable former ‘Billy’ at 25 Aungier Street.”
Not directly threatened Gunter, but the current application in for its neighbours will surely have something of an impact on it?
I am referring to application 2651/08, (lodged on 2nd May) where Flanagan’s funeral home plan to demolish part of 19-22 Aungier street (themselves protected structures) and to build:
“a new 26m high / 9 storey hotel building (with various building line/height and setbacks at lower levels) comprising: – 232 ensuite bedrooms, with all associated entrances, corridors exits, ramps, reception, foyer, licensed restaurant/bar, delivery areas, service areas, ESB substation and switch room with separate ramped access to 2 no. different basement levels ie: The upper basement parking to be accessed from existing archway between 22 and 23 Aungier Street will be for the sole use of Fanagan Funeral Directors to provide…”etc.
Surely development of these will be shortly followed by the redevelopment of neighbouring 25 Aungier St.?
