I have a copy I’ll post later tonight. Eh, no I don’t think that is the U2 tower. It looks a dead ringer for thisDAMAC tower in Dubai though… all 90 floors! The photo was of Darren Simpson and Charlie King of Damac properties… so I wonder if it was just a stock shot.
I suspect shoddy journalism really. But maybe I’m wrong… I don’t really expect much from the Metro TBH.
AFAIK that those figures included the sale/purchase (from one department to another) of the land at abbotstown and the building of the lovely new state labs complex in backweston between Lucan and Celbridge. The media did report it… but as a tiny afterthought in their rush to have a headline. Sorry if off topic. Oops beaten to it by PVC King!
Yes the enterprise centre is an absolute goldmine.
Trinity bought it from the IDA in 1999 at a price well below market value… they want it for incubation units/campus companies… but as far as I know there was a stipulation on the sale that any preexisting companies could not not be thrown out (we’re still here anyway).
Dunno if they can change its usage – might have to be rezoned, but yes its a goldmine.
It’s simply known as “The tower” and yes it was/is an industrial building but is mainly used for crafts/restaurants now. The Trinity (formerly IDA) Enterprise Centre was built around it. I work about 50m from it, so i can let yee know when work on nearby towers begins and post some photos.
I’ll be very interested to see how they actually construct alto vetro. The site is incredibly small – footprint is about that of a 3bed semi, and there isn’t anywhere for them to put stores/machinery. I imagine given this fact it will probably need to be substantially prefabricated and just hoisted/assembled on site… we will see!
