      Didn’t the last protest result in Canary Dwarf? How can you ‘protest’ against high-rise (and I’m not even a fan)?

      what would we kill for ambition like that in today;s environment?

      and i emphasise “ambition” – not necessarily the construction of this itself. Or is that the problem? Over ambition in times of plenty – unbuildable applications, inertia, bust and then nothing but vacancy and dereliction.

      Spot on Alonso… and a trend that would be much exacerbated should Dublin’s proposed new high rise policy get through, incentivise antisocial site-banking and all that…

      I remember the original protest well and it’s amusing to think about considering that we totally failed to build ANY highrise buildings in the area whatsoever.
