YOU, ME AND WE KNOW AN EXAMPLE OF URBAN EXPRESSION – CONSTITUTION HILL
This wall, a number of buildings and a Maxol garage should have been demolished by the time that I took this photograph [22 November 2014]. Today, 20 February 2021, the Broadstone Gate development has not yet been fully completed having been delayed because of ongoing Covid-19 restrictions.
In December 2013 The proposed €5 million Broadstone Gate development on constitution hill came to a halt following the refusal of a petrol station owner to vacate the site
The plan involved the demolition of a small number of buildings, including the Maxol garage on Constitution Hill. However, Maxol withdrew their consent for the demolition. In response Dublin City Council said it would redraw the plans, building the new entrance plaza around the garage. As the garage has since been demolished you can draw your own conclusions.
