Grand Canal Harbour maltings: a protected structure

I see on this website that the curved building at Grand Canal Harbour in Dublin, is a protected structure.

Here is the roof in 2007:

I have asked the developers for their comments.

  1. These Maltings were designed and buily to perform a specific task. They were ideal for their time, and made money for their owners. They are now redundant. Full photographic records should be made of their unique features. A sample building should be preserved in a location of high population density. The balance should be removed and the sites redeveloped. They are generally not suited for accomodation or retail use.

  2. This building had other uses, but its particular importance is as the most significant remaining building from around Grand Canal Harbour. The current owners have proposed its conversion to retail or cultural uses; I don’t see any reason to question their decision. bjg
