I dunno about OCS being the main street of the country any more. Seems like that honour might go to the M7 these days. But it’s certainly not the main street of Dublin. The capital’s civic axis is Lord Edward Street – Dame St – College Green – Grafton Street.
id be inclined to agree, the only thing keeping o connell st busy on the gpo side is the people walking up to henry st and on the other side is all the bus stops.if the buses didnt use o connell st footfall would plummet.you just have to watch all the people getting off the buses and walking away from o connell st down henry,talbot and over the bridge.id consider college green to be the centre of dublin these days.
I think this is a very promising development especially for liffey and abbey street.liffey street really has some horrible stores on it from the 2 euro place to all them small stores selling the type of clothes you’d see at a teenage disco with loud music blaring out on the street.plus abbey street, for such a central street is a bit dead at times.all ive ever done is pass through the street and nothing else.hopefully they do get some high quality retailers and not the usual UK multiple.
is anyone else worried that the tower element of the point development may become a casualty of the propety slump or even delayed until the market recovers? i presume that apartments in such a landmark building would quite be expensive, thereofre im thinking that given the current market conditions would they sell??
just wondering does anyone know what is currently being built here.its a very large site with some very tall cranes.the site im referring to is just on the corner at the main entrance to the park at parkgate st.
