Whilst in 20 years time cities will be building mile high skyscrapers, Dublin will have advanced a whopping 7.60 meters! Exciting!!!!

Capital Docks today!



You can really see the difference in floor-heights between residential and commercial here.



Window-frames are going in. Capital Docks takes another step forward in its development!

Didn't think the glazing would go in this early. Any sign of the facade? Can't make out with sun.

If you look at the difference between Ongarboy's post (taken yesterday) and Dvblinia's (taken today) you can see how fast this is being built. The Brexit effect...

I have a genuine hope (and resignation to disappointment) that once people see this "tall" building completed, they will understand that there is nothing to worry about at this height and even taller punctuated throughout the docklands and (hopefully) elsewhere in the city.

My breath is certainly not being held though.

Tbh I think few are actually opposed to high rise. We just have a planning system that overly exaggerates the impact of relatively small numbers of complaints from nearby residents and vested interests.

Those few are very vocal as well. Remember the people objecting to the roof-top bar on Clerys because "this isn't Dubai"?

Looks good - however if you were paying through the teeth to rent, would you not want a balcony? I could never figure out from the renders how many of these apartments actually had balconies , certainly not all.
