Re: Re: predictions for 2007
The long term plan will obviously be to cover Moore Street and link it to the Ilac centre so the height of Number 16 would be the natural height of the glass awning anyway and wouldn’t look out of place.
I have heard the covering of Moore Street discussed a few times in recent years and I must say that I would worry about it in terms of its impact on the ‘ownership’ and control of the public realm. I also think it is worth noting how it continues to be one of Dublin’s busiest and vibrant streets whilst the Carlton saga continues. Of course this is one of the ironies of this land-massing; cheap rents have allowed a variety of different uses open up and complement the long established market functions of the street.
