Aren’t there people already living there? There are about 2 or 3 sets of lights on at the one time.
If only they used the same materials on the arse of the tower.
OK this will sound very childish but I have to say it.
I couldn’t give a flying **** about any of this political bullshit. I just want to see a whole load of cranes in the docklands and this HH project built asap with as little meddling as possible. Why the hell are they lobbing 2 storeys off anyway? As if that’s going to make a difference when the tallest has 28 floors or something.
the double glazing,
What are the people inside supposed to do, freeze?
It went wrong when they decided to build it on the cheap. The cladding is crap that’s why.
Sorry but I’m really starting to not like this tower. I thought this was supposed to be a landmark building, however is a massive eyesore as seen in the picture below. From this side it looks particularly bad:
I really expected a lot more from this, and now they’ve stuck that white cheap-looking this on top. Wasn’t that supposed to be a penthouse?
The county hall with the new cladding looks much better IMO, especially at night. The problem with this one is not the shape but the cheap materials.
Sorry for the rant.January 27, 2008 at 12:55 am in reply to: well what about the developments popping up in the shannonside ? #754731
^^ That’s some butt-ugly building.
This is the site where a petrol station used to be and has been empty for ages. It’s opposite the river from the juries hotel. Sorry to keep asking this question but, anybody knows if there are plans for here?
UCC building extension. Sorry about the bad photo, the sun was right in the way at that time

Hole in the ground beside county hall
If you stand outside the college of com and look across the river there’s a big crane in your view. It turns out it’s just for some house.
Hotel on South Mall / Parnell Place. Signboards are definitely useful, now I know what this thing looks like. Wish all construction sites had these.
Dunnes. Looks like a bomb exploded back there with the amount of demolished stuff. Anyone have renders for this?
There’s a massive hole in the ground right beside county hall. Anyone know what’s being built there?
eglinton looks fantastic i must say.
I think it’ll look very good but on 2 sides only, on the north and east facing sides they have this horrible grey cladding. Don’t know why they couldn’t use the same materials as on the other sides.
I don’t think it’s the scale that’s the problem, I don’t have any problem with height. It’s just the blandness and the desire to be the cheapest that’s humanly possible.
