The site is located in the heart of Dun Laoghaire Town between St. Michaels Hospital and Bloomfields Shopping Centre and the lane running parallel to Georges Street alongside the shopping centre.
The proposal was to demolish the three buildings (35-37 George’s Street), reconfigure the space and introduce a new civic plaza named Myrtle Square in reference to a historic property called Myrtle Lodge, which was located where Bloomfields shopping centre was.

The square will provide a much-needed landmark public plaza and destination for the town and its visitors. It will provide a welcome space to linger, congregate and hold community events, characterized by trees and planting, an abundant provision of public seating to allow people enjoy the sunny aspect, an opportunity for play and/or exercise, public drinking water and a piece of art or sculpture to define the place as Dún Laoghaire.
Evercam has installed its cameras to record and monitor the construction progress but as per the clients requirement redacted the people from the video so we can see the progress without showing any faces. Evercam time-lapses can be used for marketing on social platforms as well as many other purposes.
