We’ve been banging on for almost three years now about the incredible lackage of information on this project. Ever since planning was awarded in late 2006, the start of construction has apparently been “imminent”, now we hear it is “likely” to begin in 6 or 8 weeks. Indeed it was only before Christmas that we were told work would start in January, I just really wish they would get a move on, I’ve said it before, but the vast swathes of empty buildings on Patrick Street and Rutland Street currently represent a very poor gateway to the city centre from the Dublin road side.
For such a high profile project, you would think the developers would be keen to promote it at every opportunity. Instead, there is no website, no detailed plans and the images we are supplied with are of very dubious quality. Why for instance in the CGI of the Bank place entrance is the area not landscaped and upgraded as is proposed?
The architects behind the opera centre are Ostick and Williams of Belfast but surprise surprise, there is no mention of the project on their site!:rolleyes:
