Re: Seven become eight!
The lift shaft is indeed rising there. With the delay in the towers’ demolition (due to start last November, I think), I wonder if the first residents of Santry Cross will be looking straight out at the not-so-magnificent seven from behind their wooden blinds.
If not a brick has come down on the old towers when they are trying to flog these new high-rise apartments, surely the developers will be entitled to blame DCC for letting down its side of the bargain.
Even if the old Ballymun was gone in the morning, I think trying to sell private homes in a big, blank, modernist tower in that area is chancing your arm and will surely be the biggest test so far of the housing market for first time buyers in Dublin.
