Cranes are still everywhere you look in the central city.
At least these days they’re more inclined to be involved with construction than demolition. These ones are part of The Crossing, a monster retail development planned for the corner of Colombo and Cashel Streets. It will be modern and glossy, but I wish there could be space somewhere for the character-full small retailers that used to be around this area.
“The modern shops are big and bright
but somehow they just don’t invite.”
