Dave, I’ve already said its definitely not the worst I’ve seen, even if it does look pretty dated for when it was built – it’s very much in the late 80’s style when everyone was obsessed by Aldo Rossi… It’s just a case that the site got redeveloped too soon – before there was real ambition and flair applied to these development sites. I often think that much of Galway got redeveloped in this way. it all happened too soon so that instead of buildings of quality and ambition, the city is now afflicted with horrors like the Port Mor and the Jurys hotel at Spanish Arch, some of the dreadful buildings at Dun Aengus and the Docks and various other bog – standard developments through the city. The attitude was, “…sure it’s development, who cares what it looks like!”. Limerick is lucky that it’s building boom happened when it did!
