Wow, so the new buildings- I’ve seen some of the smaller proposals in addition to Santry Cross, but are there any plans of anything close to that scale? Such as groups of identical buildings like these that will be dismantled?July 3, 2004 at 5:53 pm in reply to: Sir John Rogerson Qy #725237

On the Tara Street site? Good. Maybe theres still hope.July 3, 2004 at 5:52 pm in reply to: Sir John Rogerson Qy #725236

Water Street was shot down? I must’ve missed the news. They’d rather preserve a dilapidated old bunch of warehouses? Shame.
I don’t know much about An Taisce, but lexington & diaspora both have strong arguments and make valid points.June 30, 2004 at 11:53 pm in reply to: Pearse Tower to be demolished July 10 at 12 noon #743753
It’s going to take a while to get rid of all of these buildings. theres close to thirty, isn’t there?June 29, 2004 at 9:21 pm in reply to: Look at de state of Cork, like! #732412
So is the Clarion Hotel only 6 stories? I thought it was 8.
Or are they saying heightwise in metres and not stories? Because office floors are taller than hotel floors typically, so I guess they could be equal height and still be 8 and 6 floors.June 29, 2004 at 6:00 pm in reply to: Beautiful Limerick Building #743786

I think that is the Riverside Gateway development, designed by Tom Philips and Associates and financed by Fordmount Properties. There was supposed to be a fifteen-storey tower, but I think it was reduced in planning (although the lift shaft under construction is about ten storeys, so that might be it).
I agree with Paul though; I can’t see any beauty in the building.
I emailed the guy at Limerick.com and he said that the building under construction in that photo was to be one of the tallest in Limerick, so maybe it is that 15 storey tower after all.June 26, 2004 at 11:19 pm in reply to: Baggotonia – need some help… #743858

Convince you that it’s nice? No. Its all in opinion.
I think the glassed curved-corner is the best feature and I do like how the incorporated the brick. Its not too much, but it fits they building quite nicely, I’d say.June 25, 2004 at 3:45 pm in reply to: Beautiful Limerick Building #743781

I still think its a nice building.
Andrew, if it is the Riverside Gateway, what type of developement is this? I can find nothing about it when I search online.June 24, 2004 at 12:55 am in reply to: Beautiful Limerick Building #743775

This building looks silly. its as if it was an old building and they reclad the facade to make it look absolutely absurd at an attempt to get attention. Or it looks as if they built the roof later out of boredom. Either way, I can’t say I like it. I don’t hate it, I just think it looks a bit silly.June 10, 2004 at 3:16 pm in reply to: Limerick vs. Rotterdam ?! #743574
You’re right, Paul.
