Re: Re: Going up!
Also the heuston gate tower. When is that due to get underway? That area is about to undergo massive regeneration. Eircom are to be the first tennants in the new 9 storey westgate development opposite heuston. Hopefully these two developements will compliment each other however I have concerns about the architecture of the heuston gate tower. It dosnt look like particularly exciting architecture. I certainly hope its not Hawkins house round 2 stuff:eek: Cheers[/QUOTE]
I think that one will be done in 2011. Does anyone else think this is a very long time? I know the context is very different, but (and im sure this is a very sophomoric arch. factoid) The Empire State was built in a year.
Why does it take us 5?
I think you’re right about the design – it’s like some vaguely exciting London borough re-dev project in the late eighties.
Not bad. Not great.
