Re: Re: Roches Stores gone!
what is happening in Wilton is there going to be a replacement found for Roches or are they just waiting for development to take place??
Unattractive terms are on offer to any large potential tenants as pre planning discussions in 2005 identified this site for a mixture of high rise apartments, a multi storey car park next to the SMA Church, small retail units, and a landmark tower on the corner site next to the Wilton roundabout.
Howard Holdings took a back seat following negative publicity following the loss of 180 jobs, allowing Joe Oâ€™Donovan to do all the talking (or lack of it?)
City manager, Joe Gavin favors this direction for the site despite local councilors Buttimer and Shields cribbing and crying at their coffee mornings, Lord Mayor Ahern, Fergal (son of John Dennehy TD) donâ€™t seem to care one way or the other, and the San Francisco Kid Brian Bermingham has more important things on his mind, like trying to unstraighten Patrickâ€™s Hill to make it like San Franâ€™s Lombard Street before his junket there this summer.
