If auctioneer Pat Kearney can convince the directors of Brown Thomas in Dublin to move to the Opera Centre, then this would definitely unlock the cityâ€™s premier commercial site for re-development. Ideally such a re-development opportunity should extend as far back as Little Catherine Street!
This would indeed be a fantastic opportunity to finally revitalise a significant city centre block. The site on which the Brown Thomas store stands is essentially the very heart of the city and the old Todds building in particular was considered something of a landmark in Limerick, not something which could be said about its replacement. There would be no tears shed over the loss of the williamscourt mall either, yet another building that contributes absolutely nothing to the streetscape.
It has been speculated that Brown Thomas are reluctant to leave their current location so this whole saga could be nothing more than just wishful thinking on behalf of the opera centre letting agents! Maybe Brown Thomas might consider relocating while redevelopment takes place before moving back to a larger, modern premises!
