Highrise View From Barringtonâ€™s Pier.
The Riverpoint and the Clarion buildings together are probably the most prominent symbols of the riverside regeneration to date. Two other highrise buildings can also be seen in the background i.e. the spire of St. Johnâ€™s Cathedral and that telecommunications pylon on Roches Street. The latter would be no loss to the cityâ€™s skyline! To the left of the Riverpoint are two potential sites for redevelopment the E.S.B. and the Henry Street Garda Station. I could not see them been developed above eight storeys as they would be out line with the rest of the city quays skyline. To the right of the Clarion, we will probably see one or two more highrises been developed if the Ted Russel Docks gets the green light to rezone.
