Re: Re: the second redevelopment of ballsbridge
An interesting development. Like them or loathe them, Carrisbrook and Lansdowne are distinctive landmarks in Ballsbridge.
Often thought it a pity that the virtues of both buildings couldn’t have been combined, with the cladding of Lansdowne and the striking shape of Carrisbrook. Instead, Lansdowne’s shape is ugly, while the cladding on the other horribly dirty and cluttered looking.
I wonder about the likelihood of Sam’s Institute of Advanced Studies being meddled with, espcially as there’s a modern house or two next door…
