I presume this will be appealed by the lads who own the car bark across from Andrew Lane Theater, I heard they were kicking up a fuss about how it would negatively impact access to their carpark

Removing the story will ruin the beauty and harmony of that building. I've seen perspective renders of this hotel and it looked great how it was, the design is well considered and high quality. They're making it worse by reducing the height and possibly unfeasible as this hotel had a small number of rooms to begin with.

The set back will also ruin the design! Bloody idiots!

Interesting how those ubiquitous brown brick 1950s council flats adjoin the hotels in both the Mark Street and Bow Lane renders. No doubt, some interesting views from the hotel rooms for the guests who will stay over.... "Hey Hank, I see they hang out the laundry in their balconies in Ireland!" or "they have such enormous flat screen TVs in Ireland"

Both nice looking hotels imo. That intersection between york street.aungier street in the backline area with all the council flats has to be one of the shittest looking places in south dublin, the hotel should improve it a bit
