This is not where I would have expected East James Street to be located. Anyway, the docking station is beside Miesian Plaza on Baggot Street.
In 2015 Dublin City Council granted permission, at the end of January, to ESB Commercial Properties Ltd for plans that included demolition of all 20th-century buildings on the block, the renovation and reuse of nine Georgian houses, and change of use of part of another.
The three-acre site comprises a city block, bounded by Lower Fitzwilliam Street, Upper Mount Street, James’s Street East and Lower Baggot Street, and includes ESB’s headquarters. To the best of my knowledge the original houses on James Street East were demolished in the 1950s.
