    Don’t they all look cool. Should be all built by 2010.

    Great images Greg,

    I suspect the Digital Hub will throw up a few more buildings that make a statement as well and that the former UCD site on Shelbourne/Pembroke Rd may throw some decent speculative buildings as well.

    In relation to the image of Roches conference centre one aspect I would like to see clarified is if the large block to the rear of the riverfront structure is part of the conference centre or was it part of the speculative element of the original Spencer Dock proposal?

    The block is a hotel from my memory of the plans I saw a while back. Theres also the prospect of the new Luas, the Point Depot rebuild and the Point Village and tower, the linear park along the Canal, the Spencer Dock CIE station, and another pedestrian bridge near Castleforbes street…..oh and the Abbey relocation. Blimey, I’m tired already !!

    And more importantly lets not forget the traditionary delay that every project is due. I doubt that they ll will be ready in 4 years. but we’ll see

    Re the bridge: Was the issue of the flight path of birds, particularly swans, resolved? I recall that there were concerns that the cables would interfere with the flight patterns.

    Cupla things I’d like to see in the next 4 years. Me with my ‘hard-on for highrise’.

    The new bridge is something I’ve been quite fond of for a good while too.

    I’m just not convinced by the conference centre. The renderings are terribly vague. Thumbs down from me so far.

    Quite impressed by Landsdowne Road. I sense massive delays with this one though. They will need a bit of that canal and they’ll also need to knock down that victorian abode. Lots of prize snotty bastards in that area too.

    The new docklands space is very interesting; a first for Ireland. I am still not entirely convinced by the main building.

    Is there a pic or link for the bridge planned near Castleforbes street?

    I have not seen any details of the proposed ped bridge near Castleforbes street but its position is indicated on a number of the local area plans featured on the Dockland web site http://www.ddda.ie
