Home Forums Ireland what now for Irish Times D’olier Street buildings? Re: Re: what now for Irish Times D’olier Street buildings?



Well like clockwork, and within a hair’s breadth of the deadline, a planning application has just been lodged for retention of the ghastly LED lighting scheme erected on the former Irish Times offices in 2009. At the time, a four-year permission only was granted for the lighting to ‘allow time to assess its impact’, before the expiry of which a new planning application had to be lodged for retention of the scheme or else it be taken down. I was hoping they’d forget the deadline of December 2012, but alas the agents have little to be absent-minded about as they tap their pens in their empty offices and shop units. Following an invalidation two weeks ago, a very hastily resubmitted application has just been lodged.

The details have yet to go up online, but one can only imagine the velvety words on improved de saf-ety and secur-ity of D’Olier Street, and the gushingly positive impact this crude outbreak of linear measles has on the facade of one of the most carefully contrived streetscapes in the city.

All objections welcome by January 11th 2013. Here’s hoping we can claw something back from this hopelessly crass cub of the Celtic Tiger.
