Waterfront saga: An end in sight?


Speaking at the Town Hall yesterday, Senator Freddie Cohen said the willingness of developers to accept change meant the waterfront was moving forward.

The lead architect behind the designs for the new finance district addressed an 80-strong audience at the meeting, and said initial plans for the new Esplanade Square development could be ready by Christmas.

Sean O’Laoire was in the Island from Dublin and is working with Island Developments director Peter Crean to come up with a design for the site, which he said could include an education centre.

He was invited to talk as part of Architecture Week and said that, despite delays caused by the appointment of ‘architectural supremos’, Hopkins Architects, they hoped to have their initial concepts for the site ready by the end of the year.
