Re: Re: Winthrop Arcade
This kind of suggestion makes me sick to the bone. There are only a few little gems left in our city, and if developers are allowed destroy these for any reason at all then shame on you CCC. Letâ€™s hope the new generation of architects, planners and others involved in the structure of our city have more compassion for our city’s heritage and less want to fill their pockets. We need more protection laws and more stringent penalties where accidental fires or structure damage happens. Remember that church on Jones’ Road in Dublin that was demolished after it was ‘protected’.
We’ve had our fair share in Cork too.
The developer’s speciality seems to be a fire that happens to destroy the building. If it wasn’t for the libel laws, I could list 7 or 8 sites that burned down in mysterious circumstances.
