A covered arcade along part of the Liffey with shops and cafes is being planned by the Dublin Docklands Development Authority. Details of the project were unveiled last week as the authority outlined further details of its Liffey Island plan for the north docklands at a meeting of the North Lotts� Residents Association. The authority also said that the land between Spencer Dock and Point Village will have significantly higher development than allowed for under the 2003 masterplan. The new masterplan will allow buildings of up to 25 storeys, but most of them will be between 14 and 15 storeys. Those attending the meeting were vetted and this reporter was asked to leave. However, details of the plans were subsequently posted on architectural discussion forum archiseek.com.
