Re: Re: Eglinton Street Tower, Cork
I think the white cylinder is actually being either painted or clad at the moment, I don’t think it’s remaining white. Thank God.
It’s funny, but probably the worst part of the building are its two most prominent features, the tower and the ‘mini tower’ at the North East corner.
The rest of the building isn’t bad, at least it’s better than I expected. I know people here hate balconies, but on the East and West sides they add a bit of contour and shadow to what would otherwise be very bland elevations. Plus, the South side is much better than I expected. There’s a very tall ground floor (retail?) with a large terraced area on top, behind that are a few balconies with what looks to be wood. Not bad at all!
