Just a few updates on developments!..
Demolition work started on the savoy complex last week,work is initially concentrated on the henry street side,a number of shop units and the old bedford row maternity hospital will be demolished very soon,the new development of a hotel and 14 shop units looks pretty exciting and will give the area a new lease of life, a facelift for the old central theatre across the street is due to start very shortly, the building is to be stripped and the old methodist chapel on the site is to be restored.This street is to be pedestrianised and work is due to start in the next few weeks, finally the city centre plan is gathering pace!. Meanwhile the two infill buildings on o connell street that have baffled people for years are no more, the 2 storey buildings that looked so out of proportion are gone and are being replaced with 2 four storey ovr basement georgian style buildings to fit the character of the area, allegedly the reason for the gap in the street was for the horse drawn coaches to access the rear of the buildings!,There are also rumours that a number of tenants on patrick street are in negotiations with a developer with a view to purchasing their premises, it is thought that a large retail group has major plans for the area!
