Pic of No. 7.
Number 7 is for sale. 3.5 Million.
It is almost derelict. It’s on daft.ie.
Can anyone lend me a few bob?
I’ve objected already . Permission was granted by the idiots in Dublin City Planning. But it costs over â‚¬200 to appeal it to An Bord Pleannala. So that’s where I gave up.
Great Work Hutton !
You haven’t marked out where the Bike centres are proposed to be. I was thinking about this, and although I don’t think that the price of the bike is the inhibiting factor for people to cycle – it might just get a few more people cyling – which is a good thing albeit at a high price.
I think that the maintainance break/fix contract to support the bikes should have a 40 year duration – like the toll roads. And if the quantity of bikes decreases by (say) 20, JC Dev remove one of the billboards.
I guess what I’m saying is that the fate of the billboards should be inextricably tied to the fate of the bikes. So when the bikes end up the in canal & JC Dev have no incentive to take them out, they loose a billboard.
Why don’t Dublin City Council put up the billboards, and keep the advertising revenue themsleves – to spend on the bikes? and spend JcDevs profits putting in a few cycle lanes.
I was surprised by the quality of the conservation report recently conducted for a 3 storey over basement house on Sherrard Street, just off Belvedere Road, near Dorset Street. But the house had been burnt so I guess it was safe enough to do a good conservation report. It is too big to attach. You can nagivate to it, 20 pages with pictures conservation report of the Dublin City website. Planning number : 4154/05
The question above about the photos for the Brinsley Sheridan Birthplace; in this application number 4154/05 (also a geo. house north inner City); one of the conditions was
Note: The applicant is advised that this is an application for proposed development to a Protected Structure (within the of the Planning and Development Act, 2000). The planning application must be accompanied – by such photographs, plans and other particulars as are necessary to show how the development would affect the character of the structure, – as required under Article 23 (2) of the Planning and Development Regulations, 2001. A Conservation Method Statement/written report must be submitted which gives a brief description of the proposal and outlines the rationale and justification of the development and also state how it has been designed to have regard to the character of the main dwelling which is a protected structure.
Also there has bee a great renovation of a 3 bay Geo. house at 9 Buckingham Street, Dublin 1. Converted into multiple residential units – as nothing else would work here.
Dorset Streets most famous son has a play in the Abbey at the moment.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan. Born in 12 Dorset Street. Died 1816.
It is a long time since an MP or TD was born on Dorset Street.
The articles in the the papers are ranting about the traffic congestion around the M50 being made worse by the opening of the Port Tunnel.
Wasn’t that the objective – to remove the traffic from the city centre ?
I live in the Croke Park area whereby the vicinity is swarming with people in the Summer. which will change next year; as it will be swarming with people year long …I hate the way supporters piss in the doorways on my street.
I’ve bought my tickets for the Dubs playing under the new floodlights at night in Feburary. Lookin’ forward to it!
Croke Park Ltd. were very inclusive of the residents when they were planning and developing. They even signed a contract with the CPARA (Croke Park area Resdients Alliance) which detailed their commitments to cleansing, policing, parking and crowd control. All good stuff. (Bertie Ahern signed it)
Croke Park Ltd are no longer speaking to CPARA. The contract expired. They will not re-sign it and will not negotiate. Cpara were looking for the kind of relationship that the Arsenal Stadium provides the local community with. http://www.islington.gov.uk/Leisure/arsenal/LiaisonCommittee/ Croke Park Ltd. are having none of it.
Croke Park Ltd. has no obligation to talk to the community representative body. This is inappropriate as their revenue generation activities (games) cause the the residents major inconvenience. But as a business they know that CPARA want them to spend some of their profit limiting the detrimental impacts on the community.
The Landsdowne residents would be wise to demand long term contracts, with an obligation to renew & re-sign before the planning is permitted.
I don’t have any more of them. But they do exist. You can get to see them in the library on Pearse Street. It is very interesting. I wanted to see that one because I live in the field up from the big tree.
On one of the other maps from 1810, which you can get in the RIA on Kildare St, has a Belvidere House in north county dublin. With that spelling.
The Avenue in Dublin 1 has the two spellings on it, each with it’s own sign, facing each other on opposite sides of the street !!
Here is a map of the Dorset St/NCR from 1813 hand drawn by the Wide Street s Commision, I was hoping that a big tree would feature somewhere on the map.
where has the cycle lane gone?
It was along side the central median, but it seems to have been erased. Neither I (the cyclist) nor the bus driver knew who was right and who was wrong in our last tandem manouver up O’Connell street.
there is a really large curved wall still there with a cafe on the corner. I don’t know if it is the same one.
aren’t the first and the last pictures taken from different ends of the building?
Knock them !! There are enough redbrick warehouses in Dublin. the benifits of a decent river side area far outweight the conservation/heritage value of the two warehouses.Quote:[Gary Rhodes is to operate the restaurant in the hotel overlooking Grand Canal Dock./QUOTE]
Isn’t Gary Rodes operating a restaurant on Capel Street? I guess he’ll operate both. he must be moving to Dublin?
What Stock? What 10 year window in 1790?
The Widow Scalons pub on Pearse Street is being demolished in a kind of “dismantle it” way.
It was a Georgain building underneath all that render. . . . you might get some brown and yellow bricks there.
This is the unvailing of the most recent restoration on Lower Gardnener Street. I think it looks well but I’m not sure about the very whitish mortar used. Is that the way it would have looked when it was just built, was lime mortar that pale ?
Langrishe Place, Yes. . . . but someone got it right on the last page.
This looks like an old church . . .
