I assume your’e talking about the Limerick County Council Offices by Bucholz McEvoy – one of the most interesting and environmentally innovative buildings completed in Ireland in recent times. Just a pity about it’s context, cast adrift amidst the very worst of commercial tin box architecture….
Does it help to lift the area? Maybe it’ll set an example to future development out there but that’s probably being optimistic!
Why Limerick county council would want their hq in Limerick City suburbs is another story. Why not Newcastlewest. They might as well have left them in Limerick city as move them where they are. No doubt there’s more parking in the suburbs.
As a matter of interest what happened to the old County Council buildings in the city (Georgian buildings near the Cresent)
