Permission granted for Dublin high-rise scheme

Dublin Corporation has granted planning permission for a giant skyscraper scheme at George’s Quay opposite the Custom House, subject to the tallest block being reduced in height from 100 to 80 metres. If built, it would be by far the highest building in the Republic. Liberty Hall, Dublin’s tallest since it was completed in 1965, is 59 metres (195 feet) high. Dublin Corporation said the height reduction of the tallest block, a skyscraper by Dublin standards, was required to “reduce its negative visual impact on surrounding areas and the extent of its protrusion above the existing skyline”. The other four buildings in the office, residential and retail scheme proposed by the Cosgrave Property Group for George’s Quay are to be correspondingly reduced in height to retain the “dynamic tension” between the various elements of the complex.
