The last time I visited the Heuston South Quarter there were rain drops on my lens so some of the images contained multiple distortions. Today I discovered that my batteries were depleted[ I had put the wrong ones in the grip] and also my Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max had failed to charge ... when things go wrong they keep going wrong. Anyway, I decided that I had no option but to use my iPhone XR which produced HEIC files which I could not use in previous versions of Lightroom. When I returned I was impressed by the HEIC images as they were better than I had expected.
It should be noted that I needed to convert HEIC to JPEG, after processing them, in order to publish them.
The initial phases of the Heuston South Quarter (HSQ) complex were completed between 2005 and 2008 and resulted in six buildings with office, residential and retail accommodation. However, it includes a 3.63 acre development site with appropriate zoning and late in 2021 an application to build almost 400 apartments near the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin was lodged with the planning board.
According to the Office of Public Works (OPW) A 399 unit ‘built to rent’ apartment scheme reaching to 18 storeys in height will have “an unacceptable impact” on one of Ireland’s most important built heritage sites, Royal Hospital Kilmainham (RHK) and its gardens. The OPW informed An Bord Pleanala that the next phase of the Heuston South Quarter (HSQ) scheme “would have a significant detrimental impact on the architectural and historical setting of the Royal Hospital building”.
