Re: Re: pearse street developments
Who hasn’t? 🙂
Yes a good image showing the old stock of Townsend St and the lovely Wide Streets Commission ‘feature’ building there on the apex – as you say mirroring Doyles:
This is such an interesting area of the city, which would be even better had the original Theatre Royal survived.
Even so, Pearse St Garda Station is such a striking unique building in the centre here that frankly anything at all would work well with it on the Screen site; even the Screen does in a way cause it makes it look even better by comparision!
A striking contemporary building in between D’Olier Chambers and the Garda Station would look fantastic I think – fully completing the collection of fine stand-alone buildings surrounding the public space at the junction of these five streets.
Indeed it is this very public space that ought to be next on the agenda for improvement after Screen & Co.
Such a shame the Abbey couldn’t have filled the void 🙁
