I love that view of the bridge above…just look at the hoards of people corralled onto narrow pavements on the city’s widest bridge while acres of space is afforded to cars. Says it all no?

Thats a brilliant image Graham….a wow factor image.

In saying you overstated the importance of refurbishing the site I wasn’t downplaying how desirable it would be. I simply feel that the IAP for O’Connell Street, which sought to substantially reimagine the premier street in the city (and that by some reports spent €70m before it came to a shuddering halt), failed to alter the perception the built environment and public realm of the city in the minds of the citizenry, so I am not sure how refurbishing one terrace would achieve this.

A project of international appeal might be a comprehensive plan for the north Georgian city and a move towards UNESCO status.
