      There is a pretty large red brick building, of about 9 or 10 stories and with a dramatic black glass curtain set back a little from Harcourt Street, at the end where it meets Harcourt Road/Harrington Street. It presents its ugly backside to Camden street and looks horribly badly built, but the glass actually looks quite nice. I can’t find its name anywhere since a search for office buildings on Harcourt street throws up a lot! Does anyone know anything about it?

      It’s opposite that, but the black glass faces onto Harcourt street.

      Has anyone noticed the height of buildings around Harcourt Station swelling upwards a bit? Maybe we’ll get some big ones there someday.

      It’s not those either, but they are ugly! The one I can’t find the name of takes up more than half of the block between Harcourt Street, Harcourt Road, Upper Camden Street and Charlotte Way. The Dublin Metropolitan Garda HQ is beside it.
      It really is an ugly thing, but very imposing.

      Oops. It is part of the Harcourt Centre. The fact that another part of it appears to be called Europa House confused me.
