I’m sorry to break this to you, but the old Denmark street is already gone. There are about five georgian buildings on it, as the rest had to be removed for the infinitely more aesthetically pleasing car parks etc.
As I understand it, the modified plan for the Opera Centre will involve destroying one entire side of the street and replacing it, presumably, with department store windows. This will ruin the street’s portential, as it will have nothing but a wall running up one entire side, instead of the various individual shops that are there. Just as Arthur’s Quay deadened half of Patrick Street, the Opera Centre will deaden the other half, and now it will deaden Ellen Street too. It’s just a completely atrocious plan.
