Tbh the two multistories are nearly 30+ years both.
Both designed for cars that were a hell of a lot smaller. Look at the old Volvo estate its about the same dimensions as a modern fiesta.
Paul Street and Merchants Quay are incredibly tight for modern saloons, never mind getting your door pinged by clowns parked next to you.
I was in the market today and when leaving I went down the once buzzing arcade which brings you to Pana.
Jesus it's grim. I took photos of the empty units, some of which have been empty for a very long time.
And what retailer would want to go into an arcade surrounded by empty units? It's a very hard fix for the council unless they start providing some serious incentives.
It is like an arms race-vehicles are just getting bigger for no logical reason. Giant BMW,Merc and Audi panzers just trundling around the city. The streets are the same and car parks are the same size while some vehicles and people just get bigger.It's not the spaces that are the problem but the fact that people have been duped into buying bigger, heavier and wider vehicles in the last decade or so.
Jesus is that place still going?
Fair play to them I remember buying xworx jeans of them in the early 90’s
Sure is, in amongst fellow artisan offerings such as On the Pigs Back and The Pie Guys.
The Pie Guys which is absolutely unbelievable btw. They often sell out so you need to get there early.
I wish Grliolladh would open in the city centre but probably better for everyone's health that they haven't. They're going into the Marina Market and Douglas Market.
