I see theyâ€™ve begun attaching the reflective glass panels to the front of the new Marriott hotel on Henry Street, there also seems to be a fair bit of the usual stone tiling peeking through the scaffolding, I really hope that they havenâ€™t revised the plans for the faÃ§ade as glass was to be the dominant feature, stone cladding is an incredibly tired look at this stage! A Brise Soleil is mentioned in the application, similar to the wooden grill on the faÃ§ade of the County Council offices in Dooradoyle Id imagine!
Work has also started on the steelwork for the retail element of the complex on the Bedford Row side of the site, the number of retail units have reduced from 14 to 12 as a result of the amalgamation of some units!
A part from this thumb-nail size image from Tom McNamara & Partners, there is very little from the work of Bourke Kennedy Doyle on the Savoy Centre to be seen. One can however make out that the height of the Savoy centre is nearly double that of itâ€™s neighbour (Warehouse). See https://archiseek.com/content/attachment.php?attachmentid=3321&stc=1&d=1162756505 Also one can make out that the building is not fully glazed, as an area to the right would seem to be designated for stone cladding. See also https://archiseek.com/content/attachment.php?attachmentid=2281&stc=1&d=1145667308 Embedded into the building around the cladded area is a space from the first floor upwards and inwards for a tree to grow? Would it not be nice if someone from Bourke Kennedy Doyle would post here a decent size image.
