Re: Re: South Leinster Street
That building at the end of the street is under-scaled, isn’t it? And it helps to reveal a Dublin speciality: shite on the roofline. As far as I remember it was only built circa 2000. You can’t get developers to build at the existing street height line these days, let alone build under-scaled buildings.
Things are going totally berserk in planning at the moment in Dublin. There’s a proposal just in for a 9 storey building at the corner of Chancery Lane and Bride Street, on the site of the Napper Tandy pub. If you know this corner, it’s quite tight and consistent … absolutely no urban design justification for a taller building.
