Yep, Henry Street and the quays are a mixed bag but that’s not entirely a bad thing. It’s nice enough, and replaced horrors like Spaights and the Savoy complex. Still think it was a pity the granary building that O’Mahony’s schoolbook and crafts sections used be in got knocked (corner Shannon St./Harvey’s Quay). Had the building been fully restored when O’Mahony’s set up shop there or were they just camping in the bottom two floors?
The ESB building on the next block could do with being knocked and the site developed. It would be interesting too to see the Garda site redeveloped if the guards moved to a larger site (where though?!) Also the Smyth’s warehouse is pretty dreary!
On up Henry Street and onto the Dock Road I think it goes a bit more downhill. I really suspect some of those apartment blocks such as Mount Kennett, Steamboat Quay, even around Radio House, are going to become (more?) ghetto-like.
