Image-2 Phase 1 Baker Place.
Baker Place (Tait’s Clock) looks really well. Motor vehicle access has been greatly reduced to the benefit of the pedestrian. I always like to see trees been planted in the city, though I feel they would restrict the view of the clock thus negating it’s function and hiding it’s charm?
I hope the city council will put a big emphasis on Management and Maintenance of the streets when they are finished. I fear that, when they are no sooner laid, the ESB, Gas, water/sewerage or building construction are ripping them up one after the other. They should keep a pallet or two of the original stone materials used for future repairs etc.
