Controversial plans by Foster & Partners and rock band U2 to revamp one of Dublin’s hippest hotels received a boost this week, winning cautious support from city councillors. Dublin City council member Kevin Humphreys (Labour) told BD that a detailed set of proposals to redevelop the Clarence Hotel in the Liffey Quays area was presented to councillors on Monday and was largely welcomed. The proposals — which include a rooftop “sky catcher” to bring light into the building and the demolition of a number of nearby Georgian buildings — sparked a furious reaction from the city’s heritage lobby earlier this year, and demands from planners for more information (News June 8).
