Indeed. High-rise, yes....high-end - only in moderation.

The last think we need are ghettos of any sort.

I know you're trying to be smart, but you reflect my views perfectly.

The students can take a bus.

I had been watching the demolition of Oisin House this week. Slightly therapeutic.

Some birds-eye views of the Trinity Business School. They're fast approaching ground level.

Mostly 7-8 storeys. Tallest on the dock side, tapering to 5-6 storeys facing Macken Street, most likely matching the height of the Esat building on the south side.

Close-up view of progress on the TCD Business School. The main concrete pump was removed from site last week, and I imagine it won't be long until we see work on the facade commencing.

I see that Trinity has bought the Iveagh Sports grounds in Crumlin;

(the link is obviously to the Irish Times site so everyone should know what that means)

Big site, got it at a knock down price but can only be used for sports. They already have a huge facility in Santry.
