Roches Row will only get a make over in the last phase of the remodelling of the city centre streets.
Wow, how dingy is that?. and as you say just a couple of hundred yards from O Connell Street! It’ll take more than a few new cobble stones to clean that place up!, the grimy pebble dashed walls of the Eircom telephone exchange dont do it any favours either and that pylon just adds insult to injury! The place for that building is an out of town industrial estate not slap bang in the centre of the city! It was opened in 1956 so you would think that its outlived its usefulness by now!, its a fairly large site too so it would surely make a pretty tidy sum if it came on the market, it is one of the last large city centre sites after all! At the moment its such a shameful waste!, a well thought out development here could be the catalyst for the revitalisation of the wider upper Roches Street/Parnell Street area!
I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see what happens!
