THE GRAND CANAL – WILTON TERRACE SECTION
These images date from November 2014
I went to school near Wilton Terrace and I often took my lunch break along the banks of the canal – I am fairly sure that it was against the rules to do so but in those days children were more or less unsupervised.
In 2019 a developer was granted planning permission for a €350 million redevelopment of the Wilton Park site which will create a new city quarter of office, retail and restaurant space. An adjacent development “One Wilton Park” which has been fully pre-let to LinkedIn and was scheduled for completion in late 2020. Unfortunately I have not had the opportunity to visit and photograph the area for many months.
