The monsterous block built at the end of the street was approved by Dublin City Council in 2003 – again the DCC planning department to blame, who should have stopped this.

What is so terribly wrong about that building?

OK, it’s a big square block, but most of the lauded Henrietta Street houses are big square blocks!

I think it was one of the better in-fill apartment schemes from the ‘Tiger’ years and until the etched glass balconies were bolted on flush, killing some of the window proportions, and the etched glass roof terrace barrier went on, killing the vertical proportions of the chimneyesque central lift shaft, this was a class scheme, no?
