Let’s hope they select an architecture that compliments the fine buildings present in Emmet Place, one of my favourite areas of the city.

I believe that’s why acquiring Taboo and the TJS Building were so important for OCP I suppose. Consider the configuration of the site.

It seems a far more practical option to not include Ryans Pharmacy and TJS, and simply utilise the Examiner premises straight across, but a Patrick’s Street frontage is important as this is where the highest volume of passing trade will be attained. Given the structural layout of the block, rather than cut through Le Cheateau, go around it (as noted in the image below – this by the way, is only my own possible layout option). That way, you have a street frontage and adequate avaialble space to link up with the main body of the development. So it is do-able, but like I said, I haven’t seen the final plans yet and can’t comment. When I do, I will let you know.
