I’m surprised this hasn’t generated more discussion. If it were the centre of Dublin, it surely would. Three blocks in the heart of the city, almost completely redeveloped in a dense, mixed-use scheme. Some aspects of the urban design are interesting: it’s all firmly in the public realm; these are city streets, not a gated suburban mall. It also seems to provide an important link between the main shopping area and Laganside. It would’ve been nice to integrate Telfair Street…… It also would’ve been nice to see more apartments, but perhaps the market just isn’t there. However, it’s an approach to large-scale urban development Ireland hasn’t seen before, and I’m struggling to think of a precedent in England, Scotland or Wales…
