City's tallest building appeal set to begin
Developer Johnny Ronan's appeal to An Bord Pleanala against Dublin City Council's rejection of plans by Ronan Group Real Estate to build Dublin's tallest building next to Tara Street station gets under way today.
Mr Ronan's company, Tanat Ltd, is seeking permission to build a 22-storey (88m) tower comprising offices, a hotel and roof-top restaurant.
An Bord Pleanala's decision to hold an oral hearing came in response to a request from the developer. In dealing with the matter in a public forum, the board is observing a procedure it follows in complex cases or where there are significant national or local issues involved.
