Would def be good to see, find it a little strange that the proposals for Frederick St are seeking to remove central section. Some of the great European boulevards (Andrassy Ut in Budapest for example) have sections of tree lined central reserve you can walk along.I think Dunbar might see some public realm work given new development. Belfast City Council have previously said they'd like to transform it into an avenue or boulevard, to include better crossings and planting. Maybe all these new development will push that plan along.
Better crossings and a tree planted median would make a big difference to an otherwise inhospitable road.
It is indeed!Is that building in the background the same as the one in the other thread posted today?
I think originally this proposal had the red brick design... i wonder if they went with cream not only to provide some variation, but also because it appears to match the bit of the University that is currently being finished.Designs looking a bit samey, though the cream coloured building has enough 'edge' to make it stand out, especially since it isn't going to be a (disappointing) red/brown brick building essentially as the other two seem to be.
Yeah, I guess just jaded as a few proposals have resembled that far buliding and it won't look brilliant if that becomes the de facto template
Still, yay for replacing the nonsense and emptyness that currently litters the centre
