More ugliness to come then.

Do we really need yet MORE Student accommodation? :(

I like the Grafton Street buildings, continues the red brick character theme from Baltic and Canes… and great to see the waterfront apartment scene expanding further across Parliament Street and along Grafton Street… will all join up with The Dingle eventually… Park Road and Mill Street both improving with new developments selling fast! Watch the area around Brunswick station.
