    Those old mills in the second picture look fantastic! If people were smart, they’d all be converted into amazing apartments, like the block I lived in in London.

    Here, they’ll most likely be knocked.

      You could see that gradually happening during the boom. It kind of got to the mill and stopped. I dunno what you would do with the big grain silo yokes. No windows or anything.

      Thanks to DeV and all the boys back in Easter 1916 there is zero chance those Mills will either be knocked or turned into apartments.

        I don’t think Dev and the lads were there; I think (open to correction) they were in the building that’s now the NAMA office with the woman crawling up the wall.

          Correct.

          Bolands Mill, shown in the picture above, is often mistaken for Bolands Biscuit Mill, which was involved in 1916 and was demolished to build the Treasury building, which now houses NAMA

      A flesh eating virus devoured them all or else they went back to work in Google,who cares as long as they are gone.

    I keep wondering what’s happening to those buildings. Even post-boom and being most likely listed there should have a huge amount of people interested even today in turning that section into apartments/offices. I wonder what’s holding the development back.

      The company that built Monte Vetro (Now Google Docks) had a plan to build an almost identical building on that site at the same time they were building Monte Vetro – I’ve heard there’s a lot of listed elements to the entire site that interfered with the plans
