because half the new developments in dublin seem to be co-living, not so as to make a livable space, but simply to cram as many proles into the same space at one time, to maximise profits.
true, but these are 'student accomodation' sort of arrangements, rather than something which could be considered properly livable.Got it. Thanks.
They have to do something in Dublin with higher density living arrangements. Dragging everyone in and out of the place every morning isn't reasonable, people need to be able to start living closer to where they work.
Can you imagine mid rona having to share a kitchen with 43 people. 3-4 in house share can manage these things to some extent.
Yeah. OK, if that's how they're doing it, it's not great.
Better than sleeping rough I suppose. I dunno, the rest of the fucking world has figured out how to do reasonable high density living in cities. I've been lving in apartments which are halfway houses and rehabs, and it's fine.
There's almost nothing wrong with living in apartments.
Everything that was mentioned above, and also you can't build a community if the neighbourhood is all student accommodation and co-living spaces. People can't move in together and have babies and raise families in these spaces, so it's going to have a constant turnover of uninvested folk just passing through. A proper mix of apartment types with two- and three-beds would be better for everyone but as Ann Post said it's "architecture done by an accountant", they've studied the guidelines and wrung every penny that they legally can out of the area available. The Minister for Housing has since announced a ban on co-living, but this scheme will be grandfathered in.
I thought the building was to be integrated into the new development. Also it's 4 months away from a decision to grant or refuse permission, so not a done deal.
The original building will be kept, with the addition of a stepped-back extra storey in metal and glass on top.I thought the building was to be integrated into the new development. Also it's 4 months away from a decision to grant or refuse permission, so not a done deal.
