      Passed through today, there’s a large model of five blocks that looks interesting… no markings as to where, what, who….

      any ideas….

      There was a model in the civic offices for months of a proposal for the site of the school for the blind at merrion gates.
      five or so parallel blocks
      Bucholz / McEvoy Architects as far as I remember

      There was also a detail model of part of the scheme at 1:100 i think
      let it down a bit
      Don’t know if it was the model or the design

      St.Helen’s Convent site in Booterstown. I think the model was changed recently and doesn’t look as exciting.

      I was there (Civic Offices) yesterday and noticed adjacent to the model mentioned above a residential development model of houses amd apartment blocks by Shannon Homes proposed for the “northern fringe”. Anyone any idea where this fringe is ??

      From http://www.dublincorp.ie/planning/locplan.htm

      “The North Fringe Area comprises approximately 200ha (490 acres) of land located on the north eastern edge of the City immediately adjacent to the boundary with Fingal County Council. Together with the lands at Pelletstown, the north fringe lands represent the total amount of undeveloped land remaining in the City. “

      Just to bring this up again

      There is a more recent model of the scheme at Merrion Gates (Convent site)
      1:500 I think
      In the Atrium, Ground Floor behind the main staircase.
