Re: Re: grangegorman allocated 262 million
Maybe the soft arty watercolours are helping sell this, but this just looks outstanding to me. The massing around the entrance at Broadstone, the great split level urban space spilling across Constitution Hill to the King’s Inn park, this is great stuff, and look you don’t need 32 storey high rise clusters!
It’s not until you see someone get one of these right that you realize how stiff and sterile proposals like the Markets Area regeneration are, or how greedy, over-scaled and insensitive are proposals like Dunne’s in Ballsbridge.
This is urban planning as we haven’t seen it is some time. Now a ‘Knowledge Axis’ that links the Digital Hub to Grangegorman, is starting to look like a much more interesting concept.
