Poll: Should Ireland's cities go high-rise?
A huge development is planned for Dublin’s Docklands.

A HUGE NEW office development is planned for Dublin’s Docklands and will include a 23-storey tower with office space and residential units.

State agencies have long been urging the council to remove restrictions on high rise buildings in the city as they make it difficult for them to find adequately sized sites for buildings like hospitals and apartment complexes.

Loosening the rules would allow them to build upwards rather than outwards, but there are concerns about the impact an increase in high-rises could have on the aesthetics of the city.

We want to know what you think: Should Ireland’s cities go high-rise?
