I'd say a tram from ballsbridge to the Docklands would be very pleasant! Lots of them would use it! The red line it wouldn't be

Why would you need a tram here when the DART is basically next door?

Because the Dart is full of working-class people from the northside and Bray whereas the (Green!) Luas attracts a better class of customer, shoppers making their way from Ranelagh to Dundrum, for example.

I've always felt that the DART is the least working-class (for want of a better term) of the public transport modes in Dublin, perhaps because of the areas it serves.

None. Because there is none available

And from/to Sandyford, Carrickmines, Kilternan (let's pretend Ballyogan doesn't exist)

After all, the original Harcourt St line was built by developers to service the Garden Suburb of Foxrock.

Thank the Lord! we are all now, like, sooo against "developer-led" transport infrastructure to "exurbs" like, eh, Saggart and Cherrywood....

The DART from Greystones to town is grand. It's once you get across the river when you start to see the pyjamas and tracksuits.

I'm not on the Dort line so I wouldn't know. Anyway, until the Green Line extension opens I won't get to see what goes on north of The Spire.

It's kinda like Fair City, innit? Ugh!

Man, you're living in a bubble if you think the northern DART suburbs are bad news.

You mean..."wait till you see Broombridge"?

The Northside is just so full of places that Southside palates find somewhat tart....

Ironically, as I've mentioned before, the literal southside easily contains some of the worst suburbs of the city.

I think the whole Northside is bad notion comes from the North inner city being so bad. When you compare the south city centre to the north city centre it's no wonder the "North side" has a bad name. It's been neglected for years and the council have only assisted with its decline by allowing tacky business like Dealz to open all over it.

It looks extremely nice even if you consider "locally handcrafted" fittings as they state in video. Out of price I wonder what may be annual management fees.

The Irish Times says the 'concierge' fees are roughly 5 grand, which I assume pays for the general management of the estate as well as a receptionist. The gym and things like that (you'd think the place is still a hotel with the amount of facilities) cost extra.

Title should be changed to "under construction"

Anyway here is the plan



Here is a picture of site works from back in December. Anyone know what's going on, on the ground now?

Well I think everyone has seen beyond the north /south stereotypes. Doesn't take long to notice that theres plenty of bad suburbs on the south and good areas on the north side.
The biggest contrast by far is between north inner city and south inner city, its like night and day. Can feel like two different cities sometimes

I agree with that - it's the North vs the South inner city and it really is like two different cities. Only thing I can think of to compare is Manchester City Centre vs Salford which also merge into one another.

The request would have been enacted had you posted it in the correct thread
