They want more tilt on the residential building.

Dublin City Council asks for tower redesign in Boland's Mills development plan

Friday 06 February 2015 12.59

Boland's Mills redevelopment would have three towers 13 to 15 stories high

Dublin City Council has raised design queries about the redevelopment of Boland's Mills, the first large-scale docklands plan to be made under a fast track planning process.

Savilles, acting on behalf of NAMA, had sought permission for a €150 million development on the site as a Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) which would mean the council's decision could not be appealed to An Bord Pleannála.

It would involve three towers 13 to 15 stories high creating enough office space for 2,300 workers and 42 apartments.

But in its decision the Council has asked for a redesign of the residential tower saying the projection of balconies and lack of 'tilt' means it does not fit in with the other towers.

Among a number of requests for further information, the council wants a white/grey finish to the towers instead of the brick rust colour and more information about a pedestrian bridge from Ringsend Road into the development.

Overall, the council says the plan which creates a new city quarter including new streets and waterside plazas fits in with the requirement of the SDZ.

It also includes some original warehouse buildings which are protected structures.

The revisions seem fine but the colour change is absolutely ridiculous.

The colour change seems more of a suggestion rather than a demand though.

The colour change is ridiculous, at least the rusty colour was different and added something. White and grey is so typical of the Docklands cornflake-boxes ffs.

The other problem with a colour change is that there is already white cladding proposed on the sides of each block as a form of differentiation and contrast. If they changed the whole lot to white and grey that contrast would not be there.

They could add two floors to the residential block if they wanted to. In fact they might have to to accommodate the tilting DCC is looking for.

What are these clowns smoking? Resi tower clearly has the same diagonal line as the other two.

And why exactly should 3 new towers all look the same anyway? Bunch of jobsworths.

They can't knock any more floors off it so they have to complain about something else. Makes them feel like they're in power and "doin deh job".

No argument regarding DCC. Both the Political and Bureaucratic sides have for decades been engaged in the kinds of decisions that defy logic. I was merely making the point that the supposed new broom is really just another form of madness to that which went before....a slightly worse form imho.

I can't see how it could be anyt worse.....oh wait, it has, objecting to building's that aren't "angley" enough. Christ!

Any amended renders added to the planning application yet?

Not that i'm aware of.

I wonder does the redesign of the residential block possibly mean redesign of the other blocks in some form?

You'd expect a new plan for the residential block any time now.

The additional documents have been uploaded for this. What they have done is filled in the balconies with a sheet of glass and they have effectively swapped the colours on the scheme so the main structures are white and the original white paneling is now a sort of iron colour.

I preferred the original design! Doesn't look too bad in the first image, looks a bit shit in the second

Secondly, what's the point of having a balcony if it's covered by glass.....jesus wept
