de Valera etc was so anti-British that they ripped out all the infrastructure in a shorted sighted move and now they will have to spend €1billion+ to put it all back in again

It should never get planning.
I know you don't like it and I have seen your discussion with Stacky but what I am asking is what do you propose for this site and the other sites in general around this area? You mention Navigation House so just wondering what would you have proposed for that?

I don't propose anything for the site as Im not the one developing it.
If I were I would like to see a design that retains more of the original features. A 34 story tower is not in keeping with this imho.

All of the original features of the Customs House and bonded warehouses are being retained and restored.

Everything.

Why?

Because they are protected structures.

Ugh, we've been through this.


I am allowed not like the proposed design lads.

Bringing my own designs to the table is not a requirement to hold this opinion.

You are saying you want a design that "retains more of the original features"


They are all being retained and restored for public use even.

It is a difficult and challenging site with protected structures and water on both sides and ironically the only way to save, restore and put the old buildings into public use is to put a building there that will actually pay for it.


Everything else is just wishful thinking.

The usual tack from you, 'IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ME, YOU'RE WRONG!!!'

Grow up and have a reasonable debate without automatically being churlish and confrontational.

The pictures available entail significant alterations to the existing frontage and o yeah 34 stories landed on top of it.
Thats not conservation m8.

Grow up.

You do not have to like it. Make your observation to the council during the planning which is your right.


You think that it is not in keeping with the area (modern office/hotel/development area).


It is only a tower,not amazing and maybe that is also a strategy rather than putting something blingy and iconic flash in the pan there would also backfire.

All we have heard is "I do not like it, everything is being destroyed, it is rubbish etc"


It may never happen anyway.

The city is not a museum Dan and things evolve,adapt and change.

Right now those buildings are changing into rubble.
