Ya it would add at least one thing to the city: a giant glass sphere. Since the city currently consists mainly of badly maintained georgian buildings, a bunch of intimidating ugly central streets and a lifeless riverside, then anything out of the ordinary would make it better. I can’t imagine anybody even beginning to object in this fashion to the garbage that is the dunnes building on henry st., that marriott hotel building, the bank of scotland building, that ugly crap just being finished further up from it, the clarion hotel, the riverpoint building, and the entire dock road. Well that’s not working is it?
Oh please, a giant rotating glass sphere? Can’t to see this is just some sort of left over April fool joke?
Also, judging by the artist’s impression, it’s being built adjacent to the Condell road, with in it’s current state simply can’t take any more traffic, traffic jams are stretching out towards the two mile inn at the minute, even if the tunnel does relieve some of the traffic problems, that shouldn’t be a license to fling more traffic on to the road.
That parcel of land should be preserved and turned into a riverside park, the city needs more parks and green spaces before it needs giant rotating glass globes.
Let’s make the city centre better by building things that make it a better place to live, like parks and playgrounds etc, not fanciful pie-in-the-sky projects.
