    Quick, get the gossip mongers going here. I’m sure they can make up a story to suit the picture……..

    Oooohhh I’ll start – I’d say he is after commissioning a wig making wearhouse in that empty building. The plan is to make DOBby wigs so the ordinary pleblicite can get the ‘Power Mane’ look for a mere $499.99 (not including postage)

    It’s his way saying ‘thanks for the bailouts’

      Nah, Iveagh market doesn’t have Denis involved. This is a place down by the back of the new Teeling distillery.

    Dublin 8 is the new in-place to be apparently. Nice old building there, could be sprucing it up?

    Dublin 8 has a good rush going on with 1/2 a billion being spent on various projects… and the hospital’s been buying up property around it… Guinness just announced development on James’ St entrance where the guard box is at the gate, to be turned into a public bar/restaurant… or so the planning appeared to say… I’ll post it when I get to a desktop, if anyones interested…

      Not to mention 2 distilleries – Teelings and an old church currently being renovated.
      All happening in D8 ;-)

There will be no increase in floor area as a result of this development. The proposed associated modifications include:
        1. The installation of new external disabled lift at the northern facade of the Experimental Brewery building.
        2. The conversion of an existing guard hut into a covered smoking area (approximately 10sq.m) to the east of the existing entrance gate and 3 no. bicycle parking spaces to the west of the existing entrance gate on James’s Street.
        3. The provision of a sign (approximately 0.9m X 0.6m) on the existing timber entrance gate on James’s Street.
        4.Provision of a new pedestrian entrance within the existing entrance gate on James’s Street.
        All of the above and associated site development works are proposed on a site of approximately 575 sq.m/0.0575 hectares within the overall established Guinness Brewery lands at St. James’s Gate James’s street and Victoria Quay Dublin 8. The application relates to the development which is for the purpose of an activity not required to be within the scope of Diageo’s existing integrated Prevention Pollution Control Licence (IPPC) for the site.

          I live near the Guinness factory and the land they own is huge. Good to see some of it being used again. Dublin 8 seems to be the market to get into at the moment. I know rents in my apartment block are €900 for the cheapest so commercial rates are sure to start sky rocketing.

            Well, we don’t want ’em doing that… there’s no one in a lot of them in the area, some empty since I moved into the area in 1997. Let’s hope this is managed properly…

            I’d love to see all the premises filled. But I’m not sure what part you moved to but iv lived in D8 all my life and up until the “good” times ended every premises was full. But it’s an inevitability that has an area does well, or to coin a phrase I hate, start going a bit more up market the premises fill and land Lords become greedy because they know the area is desirable for business.
