Yeah Clancy Strand looks really impressive now, the O Callaghan Strand project is a bit more elaborate and is due to be completed by December, looking forward to seeing the finished product.
Across the river, similar improvement works on the section from Sarsfield Bridge to Shannon Bridge are scheduled to begin in October, hopefully this revamp will add a whole new dimension to the quayside. Despite large-scale redevelopment over the last 10 years or so, levels of footfall along the quays have remained pretty low and the area is still vastly underutilised. Ideally I would like to see more cafes and restaurants opening up along the riverfront once the area is made more pedestrian friendly. At the moment Milanos and Clohesseys are the only businesses with a presence along this section although I believe 2 new restaurants are due to open shortly in the Riverpoint building.
The potential redevelopment of the boat club and ESB sites will hopefully further contribute to the creation of a more vibrant riverfront here.
Attached is the only image of the proposed works thats currently available.
