Something utilitarian like – New Developments in Limerick might be an idea. Frank McDonald had an article in the Irish Times about Limerick a few years ago entitled Fab City – dunno bout that one myself but sure it’s your choice. Will try and get back to you with something more imaginative. Didn’t know you could change thread titles.
Is there any news on whats going to happen with the ESB site? The eircom building on Thomas Street ( the one with the tall mast that you see as soon as you come out of the station) seems like another place with a lot of potential in the centre of town. There’s a large vacant yard beside it too which seems to be used as parking. If the city council showed some foresight a new street could be opened up through the complex linking Dominic St and Thomas St. The lack of a connection between these streets, I think is a major factor in keeping people away from that side of town. A new street in the area along with the proposed cinema would have a big impact on the whole city centre, creating a new link and smaller blocks between Upper William St . Pery Sq. and the Peoples Park. It could prove a very pleasant route and would help bring people back up to Parnell St and the side strrets off it.
Has anyone managed to get to the top of the new tall building yet? The views must be fantastic.
