Limerick City heights and densities seem to be currently decided by one individual and based on the political power and monetary capabilities of individual personalities involved rather than a clear and transparent framework for the city .

In Aukland , each zoned area of land has a height restriction , density allowance and a pallette of materials proposed to be drawn upon. Similarly , development regulations state clearly allowable heights and ‘set backs’ from street edges for proposed buildings in Manhattan .

Clear policy in terms of scale , height and density are required urgently by Limerick City Council for the existing city area before they claim to be ‘under resourced ‘ and get sidetracked by the extended area ……..

I agree dreamstate, an incoherent skyline could spoil the city especially along the waterfront. The image below is pretty much the present view as seen from the town hall. It’s right in the planners face and hope sincerely the future projects for the Arthur’s quay, ESB and Garda sites will harmonise the skyline! In my opinion the Riverpoint looks very well from it’s western side but it’s eastern side looks somewhat clumsy.
