They have created more hype by remaining anonymous. We will all know who they are when they move in.
Maybe they are looking for attention. Maybe its those twats out of Hello magazine.August 14, 2003 at 12:07 pm in reply to: social housing in Dublin Docklands #734931
Theres a really interesting development going on in Artane at the moment (currently in early stages). They are townhouses/apartments but each has its own garden. The gardens are all staggered, some high up some down low, some are even down a short passage from the building at the rear of other gardens, but over all it looks like a nice development.
Definatley an innovative way of providing space. I have the sales brochure but don’t know if they have a home online. The name of the development is Timbermill.August 11, 2003 at 11:01 am in reply to: social housing in Dublin Docklands #734919
Do these people not realise how badly they are damaging the value of their property by making this situation so public. Surely they could resolve their disputes face to face.
Personally, I am an overworked, underpaid stress ball – a product of modern society and I chose my living space to reflect my needs, ie. A place where there would be like minded people. I want quite on a saturday morning and by god I am going to get it.
Surely they assessed their own needs before buying in, or did they just get reeled in by all the hype.August 7, 2003 at 6:08 pm in reply to: social housing in Dublin Docklands #734913
Kids play, they should have thought of that before buying. Kids play on my road at all times of the morning and night, its been that way for more than 20 years, you get used to it.August 6, 2003 at 12:31 pm in reply to: Bertie, any comments? #734906
The problem is that due to increased quantities being transported there is a requirement for large trucks to transport all the goods we require. Having one large truck rather than two small ones can reduce the cost of transport hugely and having one truck (whatever size) on our streets is definatly better than having two. Your arguement is very similar to the anti high-rise arguement. Just coz they are too big !?!
Damn it sw101 you got there before me!July 21, 2003 at 3:19 pm in reply to: definitive dublin snug guide… #717539

I have to say that I believe the so called middle class in this country are among the most destructive.
I am disapointed. The design can be debated for years, but the engineering is poor.July 15, 2003 at 5:19 pm in reply to: Derelict Buildings #734641

Do you think it is a good idea to email them a link to this thread?
Let them see what people think.July 14, 2003 at 3:04 pm in reply to: City of the Sacred Heart #734607
“All religious orders will be invited to be part of the design stage (as will others) so that monasteries, such as Benedictines, Cistercians, and Carmelites would be an essential part of this New City, and indeed help to form the new spirit of this city.”
They say all relious orders, but do they actually only mean Christian orders? Thats what it looks like to me. Sounds a bit fundamentalist to me.July 10, 2003 at 3:30 pm in reply to: Removal of Street Furniture #726432

Why do they need to be long term community schemes? Why can’t they be stop gap?
I’m not disagreeing, just asking.July 8, 2003 at 11:00 am in reply to: The Cow Parade #734194

The floor will sit inches below the water line and will be raised above it for use.
It will make a lovely litter collector.
Does anyone remember when the buses went on strike, the city was never so free. I reckon go underground and get rid of some bus routes.June 26, 2003 at 4:37 pm in reply to: 5-storey apartment houses planned for Bray #731659
I agree I am all for building up.June 26, 2003 at 3:05 pm in reply to: 5-storey apartment houses planned for Bray #731655
The issue in Adamstown is the lack of infrastructure. There currently is none in the general Lucan area (unless you are lucky enough to live in the village) and there are no plans for any, yet there are plans for 10,000 new homes.June 25, 2003 at 2:27 pm in reply to: 5-storey apartment houses planned for Bray #731652
The issue is not the right to light, it is more to do with lifestyle and privacy. The residents in the Croke Park vacinity bought into an area with a large stadium and the accossiated problems/benefits.
A lot of people buy into spacious areas with a differnt lifestyle and pay through the nose for it. These areas generally have limited infrastructure and the new developments do not add to the local amenities but do overburden the existing ones.
