Frank – I’ve no doubt you’re right on the figures and I welcomed corrections. As I said in my post these were a back of the envelope GESTIMATES used to illustrate the point that towers don’t go that far to addressing the density issue while having very dubious urban consequences. The rations more important to this point. Again we categorically DO NO NEED towers of the type demanded (30 plus floors) by some on this thread. What is needed is a wholescale change in current suburban densities and entailing the need to retro fit existing suburbs. I’ve read a lot of your comments under a number of different themes and am for the most part in complete agreement to all you’ve said on density – scale – urban grain – livability etc. I have no objection to tall building per say but only in the right context. Dublin does not provide that context. (Maybe it will in 50 years). Shane
