1816 – Corn Exchange Building, Burgh Quay, Dublin

Architect: George Halpin


The Corn Exchange Building designed by George Halpin in 1815 was approved by the Wide Streets Commissioners in 1816 with work commencing soon afterwards. Its granite facade still remains on Burgh Quay. Shipping came as far upstream as Burgh Quay until 1879 when Butt Bridge was constructed. Many of the buildings on Burgh Quay including No.8 still retain remnants of the shopfronts designed for the Wide Streets commissioners.
