Yeah the exterior finish in that section will be different to the white render. It'll be a dark grey material and some wood panelling to the front.
I don't think Dublin Road is too bad, although I think that's mostly because of the large, mature trees which really enhance the street. Over the next decade, hopefully more taller proposals come along to complement ETAP and Gallery and so on. No disagreements with ETAP, it's truly atrocious. Not one window facing out on to the street. Planners must have been hungover when they approved that dungfest.Looks great but the Dublin Road is a complete mess. Just looked at it today on Streetview and by god is it grim! The new Etap looks like a bunker....
Definitely. Don't know why they haven't already as it's truly awful and just lying there vacant. In which case maybe it's more likely to be refurbished rather than Novotel?Progressing with the demolition of Fanum House and building Novotel (?) would help the whole area - I know it was a phase of what we've already seen with Etap but surely the rest of the plan has long expired?
That would surely be the right idea in the area, but it doesn't seem to be very in vogue at the moment! I don't think I can remember seeing an application like that here for a few years, but I don't know about other cities.A 5-7 storey apartment development with varying heights and finishes so it doesn't look like a big wall would benefit the area greatly.
If I remember correctly that was originally left clear, along with Bankmore Square, and a strip all the way along Ormeau Ave and along behind the Gasworks because it was originally earmarked for the "Belfast Urban Motorway" (would have made a nice acronym ) back in the 60s.Bruce street needs developed, especially the south side which is all carpark
