You change your opinion of what looks good and what looks bad every 20 minutes. You haven't a clue.

For example? I've been railing against trees in front of historic buildings for years.

Yeah, you've been railing against trees!

Kinda like bragging that you've been opposed to flush toilets for years

Temple Bar Square

Planning Permission granted to refurbish Temple Bar Square and adjoining streets.
Less clutter, a level square with the pedestrianised streets with repaved streets and the intention to have less vehicular traffic on these streets.

Past few planning images in this thread have all been fantastic; Johnson Place, Stephen's Green North, Andrew's Street and Temple Bar Square. If these came to fruition it would markedly improve the pedestrian environment in the city both aesthetically and functionally.

If it is taken up by zara instead of seven independent businesses then that is a major social loss for the area.
Agreed - the new building will give great definition to the area and help with the spread of the shopping district from Grafton St however if it's just taken up by one tenant that would be a mistake. Zara could take the three floor section on the street connecting to South King Street with at least two other retailers in the other sections of the scheme.

One of the nice things of this area is the number of small units and boutiques. This would be at risk if a large Zara was to be developed within it.

ABP Grant permission for Wetherspoons to convert the former bank/church on Lower Abbey St to a bar. It will certainly liven up that stretch of street in the evening and will be good to see such idle period buildings brought back into use.

Good. Iím generally against Wetherspoons but theyíre fine in areas like this and will help with the very slow improvements that are taking place in Dublin 1.

I rather think that's an awful location for a Wetherspoons myself. I mean, I think everywhere is, but one there is going to be a nice post-methadone clinic hangout.

I'm just extrapolating based on my memories of the Bridge House Wetherspoons in Belfast. The fun times when a bar fight smashed through the big front windows and out into the street.

Wetherspoons just attract a lot of trouble, and Dublin has been lucky enough so far that their other branches here have been in shopping centres or posh suburbs. I don't think this will end up being a crack den or anything like that, but it won't be somewhere I'd take a tourist anyway (not that I would, Fķck Wetherspoons)

And I say all that as a bleeding heart.

So it appears DCC has finally had enough and it's taking over the Iveagh Markets

https://www.rte.ie/news/dublin/2018/...iveagh-market/

I presume there will be some court battles before anything resembling redevelopment finally kicks off.

He said he would fight "tooth and nail" to keep possession of the site and "if necessary, fight it in the courts and let a judge decide."

Well hopefully the judge had his head screwed on right and gives ownership to the council. Anyone who hasn't as much as disturbed the dust settled within the building in over a decade is clearly not competent enough for the job, I don't see how he could argue against that. Its unfortunate he encountered so many osbtacles but he needs to give it over to somebody who can actually get it done and deliver this much needed market for the city

The fact that he has applied for planning permission twice and let both permissions expire , on an important listed public building, which is in a state of neglect due to poor ownership maintenance, are all very strong points in favour of the council if it comes to the courts

He doesnít deserve to keep the site. If he canít develop a hotel during a hotel shortage when they are shooting up around him then heís not capable. Strip him of it I say, heís had his chance. Didnít the council gift it to him with the condition itíd be developed?
