Re: Re: Grafton Street, Dublin
Read in the Irish Times today that the keys were handed back to the owners of the ‘Habitat’ building on Suffolk St. Attempts to lure in a new trader have failed so far. The article suggested that some high end fashion names were put off because of the poor mix of retail in Grafton st. and the overall quality of the urban environment. The street has been going downhill for years and is in desperate need of upgrading – new paving is pretty much a basic requirement. As for the old ‘heritage’ lamps, black bollards & street furniture in general… please lets see something more contemporary next time around?
