Poll: Do you think high-rise buildings would be a good idea?
Rents in Dublin city are 5.2% higher than their previous peak in early 2008, and when compared to their lowest rates in 2010, have grown by 51.3%.

THE NUMBER OF available houses on the Irish rental market has fallen by 20% in the last year, while the cost of rented accommodation has risen by 3.9% in the past three months.

The under-supply and rising prices are putting severe pressure on young families, job seekers and workers.

Ibec’s Aidan Sweeney is calling for high-rise buildings to be considered saying, “Well-designed tall buildings, in the right context, can make a positive contribution to their setting and the city.”

So today we’re asking, do you think high-rise buildings would be a good idea?
