Re: Re: Look at de state of Cork, like!
With regard to Eglington Street, while in general I welcome the modernity of the development, I’m slightly surprised by the ‘slightness’ of the main tower. Perhaps it will look better in reality, but having viewed the visuals, I found it less substantial than expected. It appears very thin and overtly angular. Compare for example, with the Clarion in Limerick. While this high-rise is far from excellent, it does appear more modern and ‘substantial’ than the Eglington Street ‘gateway’ building. Speaking of Clarion, now that the veil has started to come off the Cork Clarion and the lady is beginning to show her face, I must say that she will make an attractive addition to the city. I also hope that they maintain their commitment to develop an active boardwalk area at the front of same.
