This development cannot go ahead fast enough. Not sure if it's just speculative to sell on or if the developer will go ahead with it.
The gable wall on the holiday inn will always be an eye sore but hopefully less noticeable unless you work in the office window directly facing it.

Yeah Andras House leased the land for development but did bugger all with it.

The Housing Executive owns the land and had Andras' lease terminated. The HE have been cooperating with new developers for a revised plan for the site.

I think that’s just grey as it’s not part of this development. I don’t think that land is owned by the HE.

The grey area immediately behind the hotel is currently their service yard while the area behind the existing terrace buildings have a second fence separating it from the wider site.

This project and the couple others around Bruce street will really seek to urbanise such a godforsaken corner of the city centre. Should be a winner with the new transit hub across the road.

I'm really hoping that the Bruce Street development will encourage regeneration on that section of Great Victoria Street.

Could be the most transformative development the city has seen if it goes ahead. That corner of town has an eerie feel to it, and it's actually worse in broad daylight than it is a night. When the inlaws are over from Scandinavia I have to make a conscious effort to not walk down this street with them. These types of streets have become too commonplace in British/Irish towns and cities in general.
