Short and sweet. It is patently absurd that the majority of new office developments in Dublin are less than a quarter the size of new office developments in London. As Dublin is actively engaged in trying to win office type investment away from London what is the point in crippling yourself before you start ? Protect the views ? Give me a break. Either Dublin wants to be a major player or it doesn't. If no then fine. Bad enough not having a metro but to have the cockneys refer to Dublin as Canary Dwarf as they do should surely raise some hackles ? Twenty or thirty 50 storey buildings would do nicely and think of the view as you approach the harbour !
