Roadmap: Portobellowing

Posted December 31, 2017 in More

Expect hotels to be the new donuts this year with them popping up everywhere.

There’s Aloft and The Maldron due for completion in Dublin 8, the Clayton Hotel on Charlemont St, Marlin Bow Lane and Pinebrook house all in Dublin 2 and a boutique hotel by Press-Up in Ranelagh.

However, there’s also the concerns of the infringements on existing spaces and a proposal to build a 178 hotel at Portobello Harbour is one such instance.

The scale of it threatens the plaza which is a hang-out for skate-boarders and the bag of cans brigade in the summer time.
