Dublin city centre should be metamorphosed soon!
Last week, the Business group Dublin Chamber, which represents over 1,300 businesses, welcomed proposals to redevelop the North of O Connell Street and the iconic Moore Street.
The plan is to create apartments, a hotel, a metro station, more shops, offices, apartments, two new civic squares and also a new east/west street which will allow pedestrian access between O Connell Street and Moore Street. Sounds fabulous, doesn’t it?
