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. Itâ€™s right in the planners face and hope sincerely the future projects for the Arthurâ€™s quay, ESB and Garda sites will harmonise the skyline! In my opinion the Riverpoint looks very well from itâ€™s western side but itâ€™s eastern side looks somewhat clumsy.
