Re: Re: Moore Street Concept
There was plans for a Chinatown in Smithfield but like all these plans in Dublin it got dropped. If Dublin City Council ever gets its act together the Markets area could be a good place for it, particuarly the Market building itself which could be great as an indoor stall type food place similar to those in Camden Market (albeit most of those are outdoors)
I think the Covent Garden style proposal for Lysaght’s Fruit Market will work without any specific theming but feel that if the overall area is to see a benefit beyond the obvious attraction of a single building and known demand from the Four Courts then adjoining streets should be brought into play. In the absence of tax breaks the chances are that the Moore Street temporary lets will scatter to the four winds.
Which would be a pity!
