Re: Re: One Berkley court -132m Tower
Oi Wearnicehats Im guessing you read the papers – still reckon SD will get 70 million an acre ?
What if Sean Dunne has no intention of building anything. What if heâ€™s got the high of the deal, the competition, the spotlight. What if heâ€™s using the site as collateral to finance other deals. What if, in 18 months time, he simply sells the site. Even if he gets â‚¬70million per acre (not unreasonable) heâ€™ll turn a tidy profit. And if his planning is refused he can leave head held high. If it is granted, heâ€™ll get even more cash for the site.
Yep Kefu .. Id say their beating down Sean Dunnes door to spend a million on an apartment .
Before people start talkin’ about those commuting from two hours away, this proposal will have absolutely zero impact on this. It’s not unrealistic that starting prices here will be beginning (and this is conservative) at around E800,000. More likely in fact is that every single apartment in this complex will cost more than E1 million. It seems likely that many of these will be bought up by investors or for the very wealthy as a second home. None of the people commuting from Portlaoise, Virginia, Gorey or whereever are going to be moving into this scheme.
One Berkeley Court is a development for the very rich, as befits its locations in Dublin 4.
So for anybody making this argument, give me a break.
Let the project stand on its architectural merits and that alone.
Its “architectural merits” are sure to bring home the bacon, seems to be working for all the other box extensions/contemporary/clean line/minimalist pads whose prices are dropping thru their marble floors.. too funny …:)
