Full planning permission has recently granted by An Bord Pleanála for a Lawrence & Long designed mixed used development on Merchant's Arch Lane in Temple Bar. This development has gained attention recently.
The new development does not interfere with the Merchant's Arch Public House or the arched passage accessed off Wellington Quay. Nor does this development encroach upon Merchant's Arch lane. A slender four storey volume is presented to the North east corner of Temple Bar Square, finished in brick and red sandstone.
