An Taisce Says New Tara St Tower Will Have Negative Impact On City


An Taisce says a decision to give the green light to a tower at Tara Street in Dublin will have major repercussions for the status of the city.

It says it undoes decades of planning control in the city and will have a negative impact on areas like Trinity College, the Quays, College Green and O’Connell Street.

The 22 story highrise building would be located opposite the Custom House. An Taisce’s Advocacy Officer Ian Lumley says it would cause a complete change to Dublin’s skyline.

Company Tanat Ltd, run by Celtic Tiger developer Johnny Ronan, first applied for planning permission for the building back in 2017.

Two years ago, Ronan filed to build an 88 metre-tall tower on a site adjoining Tara Street Dart Station. If built at this height, it’ll become Ireland’s tallest building.

The plans included a 110-bedroom hotel and a rooftop bar.
