I took a few snap-shots of the proposed site for the partly decentralisation of the foreign affairs during the week. The site is now cleared and they are busy driving foundation piles into the ground. This upper part of Henry Street has come on well over the years and is predominately driven by office developments.
Image #1 shows the work-in-progress and the rear of the former County Council buildings.
Image #2 shows the rejuvenation that has already taken place across the road from the late 80â€™s / early 90â€™s.
Image #3 is also across the road from the new development and shows the former Presbyterian Church (now office accommodation) being over shadowed by the riverpoint tower.
Alas lost a bit of quality by down sizing the images!
