A few more. The new square adjoining the development is quite nice IMO. Agreed about the black windows .

Some more pictures from today, they have got to do something creative with the giant beige wall, it is 5 stories tall and about 100 feet wide.

Tbh I think capital dock looks really well up close

WTF is up with that huge blank wall? Why is it not even glass?

^ That last picture is the definitely the best angle of it. The public realm looks nice Also, I hope they keep that beige wall clean or it will likely be filthy in no time

I think one of the larger reasons why that is, is because of the black accents on the window frames, doors, signs etc. Paired with the brick is has more of a luxury feel. Only the bottom two floor have that though..

All the floors above use an off-white instead of black for some strange reason. If they just sent someone up with a can of paint it would be looking much better from a mid-range within days.

Provide scaffolding for graffiti "artists"?

Just goes to show how a decision to install cheaper windows can ruin a building. The black windows would have made this significantly better. The lower floors actually look half-decent.

More images!

The back of the main residential building really shows the difference between the bottom two floors and those above due to the black vs. light-grey window frames. Also along the side of this building on the 3rd floor, there is a place that black railings are placed directly adjacent to a window with grey railings..






The 'Green Street East Building', the lesser-seen residential building of Capital Dock.




Some pictures of the walkway on the opposite side of the main residential building & retail building. This doesn't appear to be fully open yet because it's still fenced off at the Liffey end while being open at the end that meets the square at the front of the retail building. There's a small playground, plenty of seating & some exercise equipment along here.

All the finishing is high quality, except the bloody resi tower. Even if they just used the black brick façade à la NTMA building across the river, I think it would look brilliant. (maybe someone can do a photoshop job of that?)

I've actually posted a photoshop of that before (+ replacing the top 4 floors with the same design as below). It would have looked much better but only if the materials had been good quality, all the materials used on the Dublin Landings scheme.

The black window frames on the lower levels bring out darker tones in the brick, much nicer. Makes the brick distinctly less puke-coloured.

I was thinking it would be nice if they glazed the woeful "wall" east facing section in the same manner, like those winter-gardens. Would make it a little less offensive.

So a bit of a soulless U.K. chain then... disappointing, like the development itself

If you like McKillen venues, you'll love Brewdog.

Very similar decor, very similar atmosphere. Food menu is usually simpler and better done than McKillen (with the exception of Wowburger, which would be hard to do simpler and is fine)

I like the white residential building. They put good lighting on the top of that building as well.


Looks like how Mahon Point will look in Cork in my opinion, same façade (and architects).

I think the whole development looks good in real life - it's just very conservative, the windows are big and the brickwork is classy.

They could do a lot worse than Brewdog too, they make all their beers at their original brewery in the highlands of Scotland, and you can try the beers before you get a pint, a pretty good Scottish success story. The blank wall I think will be hidden by the new office extension to the warehouse development that is facing the new square.
