U2 in talks with DDDA about possible alternative locations for studio
headquarters

In the latest development in the dispute over U2?s Hanover Quay studio
premises, the band have issued a press statement revealing that, in the
event the Dublin Docklands Development Authority (DDDA) can find
them a suitable replacement location "close by" for their studio, they
would "certainly be interested".

"U2 have a great place to work at the moment that we?re completely
happy with," the band said in the statement. "We don?t want to move but
if the DDDA can come up with something for us close by as part of their
plan for this unique area we?d certainly be interested.

"We?re currently in discussions with them."

The dispute first arose with the issuing of several DDDA compulsory
purchasing orders, to U2 and to adjacent residents and businesses in
the Hanover Quay area, wherein they must sell and vacate so the
buildings can be demolished and the neighbourhood redeveloped.

No information is available at this time about the reasons behind the
band?s apparent change of heart, within what time frame the discussions
might happen, or whether the band will withdraw their formal objection,
lodged last year with An Bord Pleanala.

Meanwhile, some U2 fans have reacted by initiating a petition asking
the DDDA to reconsider their plans to demolish the studio, on grounds
that it is a site of cultural import.

The public hearing is currently still scheduled to begin in Dublin?s
Gresham hotel on January 29th.
