New tower to call time on the City Pride pub?

IT could soon be last orders for the City Pride pub.
The Westferry Road haunt looks set to make way for a flagship tower, with a hotel, apartments and retail space.
Developer Glenkerrin has plans for a large building on the site after snapping up the prime development land for a reported £32million. But it remains tight-lipped on when it hopes to call time on the watering hole.
It has been suggested that Glenkerrin is considering a building rising as high as 55-storeys, with a five-storey hotel and 400 apartments.
The Irish company has already appointed world-renowned architect Foster and Partners to look into options for the site, which is just one of a cluster of proposed high-rise buildings on the western end of the Island.
