I imagined so – can’t exactly see it adapting to its new location anyway – “ah sure just tack it on the front there” 🙂
Didn’t see this coming either. It has to be welcomed. In much the same way as Trinity killed Pearse St, The Irish Times at best can be accused of manslaughter regarding D’Olier St – it was just unfortunate the nature of their operations led to the inevitable dead frontage along there. Coupled with O’Cll Bridge House straddling nearly half way down, and nothing but Pearse St at the end as an attraction, the street just died.
If it wasn’t for the bus stops there, there’d be little pedestrian traffic at all.
The ideal situation would be to to convert upstaires to residential, whilst having retail on the ground/first floor. As to whether a major outlet would want to take on such a project, the project being the street rather than the buildings, I’m not too sure.
