While on a global scale, the U2 tower isn’t remarkable in height or concept (Turning Torso in Malmo, Sweeden)… it’s a big step for Ireland and Dublin specifically. I’m glad to hear about the height increase and a bit more information from the link posted. I can’t wait to see how it will actually look in person. Hueston Gate as well… I don’t think the renderings will do it justice.May 18, 2005 at 3:22 pm in reply to: Beautiful Limerick Building #743791
another view of development, the tower is new, the block on the left is limericks answer to hawkins house recladded.
Yes, I’m aware of those pictures…… as I emailed the developer and got them and uploaded them. 🙂April 23, 2005 at 8:10 pm in reply to: End of era at McAllisters #753035

As far as I know nothing at all has happened with it. Someone correct me, though, if I’m wrong.January 5, 2005 at 11:01 pm in reply to: Players Square #748461
So will they adjust it and resubmit or you think it’s just dead?December 19, 2004 at 9:56 pm in reply to: Sandyford high-rise on the drawing board #748863
That picture on the bottom isn’t of the Silver Swan, its the Queen Maeve Hotel (15) and the 10 storey office block.
So is it 13 or 10? The article seems to indicate that the planning commision made them change it to 10.
Also, can you update us on when it begins construction?
Yeah, bringing it down from 13 to 10 is fine. The environment of that location doesn’t need to be changed too much more dramatically than it’s already going to.
As far as the design goes for this new Silver Swan proposal, I think it looks good. The renderings are awfully small, but it looks neat. Good job, Sligo.November 10, 2004 at 11:13 pm in reply to: Southbank development finally dead #748336
I was holding out hope that this might be Ireland’s first tall skyscraper. I guess we still have Hueston Gate in the running…October 26, 2004 at 8:56 pm in reply to: Tivoli Theatre redevelopment approved #747998

Thanks!September 23, 2004 at 10:12 pm in reply to: Has anyone a picture of the George’s Quay tower? #720347
The TV show Alias (Jennifer Garner’s) last season had an episode that took place partly in Berlin and they showed an aerial shot of a city and labeled it “Berlin” but it was Dublin! It was George’s Quay and surrounding area from a helicopter at night! It was very lovely, but I got pretty miffed that they put it as Berlin.September 21, 2004 at 6:52 pm in reply to: Burlington Road building #726896
A mild form of architectural terrorism.

It says the Deadline is Oct/Nov and the contract is awarded in December. Which means we may know if it will be approved by Spring of 2005?September 9, 2004 at 9:12 pm in reply to: Luas Connolly Station latest images #745815

I never said it was exciting, original or interesting. Just nice. Chill out, Paul.September 8, 2004 at 11:48 pm in reply to: Luas Connolly Station latest images #745813
It’s horrible! To sloppy. Its like they were trying to make a statement but made too many little mistakes that when all put together just throws the whole design off. Thats awful!
Thanks for the photos, JJ.September 8, 2004 at 10:16 pm in reply to: The Park, Carrickmines #739442
Boring layout! The high-rise looks nice. Don’t know how well it will age, though.
