That really is tragic; how anyone could not have seen the value in that building’s facade defies belief, I imagine that the original proposed scheme foundered in the 1979 property collapse and that the garage use only became viable a decade later when land values has totally collapsed on foot of the carry on within the Oliver Bond complex which has thankfully changed beyond all recognition.

The real tragedy is that if this could have held on another 10 years at least the facade probably would have been saved as per most of the Merchants Quay redevelopment.

The speculator behind its demolition should have a plaque on the first floor of the International Bar
