Re: Re: ILAC centre
I recently met a tourist who had stayed at the Jury’s just off O’Connell St; it was as he put it a clean crash pad and very convenient to the centre. Put simply there is no incentive to design an attractive hotel in that price bracket where most sales are via the web to weekend tourists and mid level business execs. As much as I feel it is an innappropriate building for the area; it did serve its purpose in being the first major development in that specific micro area and the Lidl that occupies the rear of the scheme has added a vibrancy a couple of blocks either way.
Great to see the Dominick St flats go; they were far to visible from the Kings Inn St side of Bolton St; I wonder do the DoEHLG have any enforceable guidelines on architectural standards for such PPP projects where the site is handed on a plate.
