Hanover Quay Might Be Demolished

Irish Independent: Success to beat the band may be key to saving U2 studio


January 9, 2002
From The Irish Independent:


Success to beat the band may be key to saving U2 studio


SUPERGROUP U2 have cited multi-million record sales and musical
heritage in their case against the compulsory demolition of their
recording studios.

The first ever pop planning battle could see U2 members in action at the
Gresham Hotel in a fortnight when a Bord Pleanala oral hearing gets
underway into objections by the group and their manager Paul
McGuinness to the planned compulsory purchase on the Dublin southside
docks studios.

In their formal objection made in the names of Adam Clayton, David Evans,
Paul Hewson, Laurence Mullen and Paul McGuinness, the band say they
have been recording albums at the Hanover Quay premises since about
1994.

This was well in advance of the Dublin Docklands Development Authority
(DDDA) which has served a compulsory purchase notice on the studies for
a quayside public amenity.

According to the nine-page submission, their latest album 'All That You
Can't Leave Behind' was recorded at the studio and has sold over 10m
copies.

The band say they have been recording in the docklands area since the early
1980s at studios in Windmill Lane, prior to the move to Hanover Quay.

U2 insist that the present use of the premises is entirely in accordance with
both the corporation's development proposals and the DDDA master plan.

According to the submission, keeping the buildings and structures was not
inconsistent with the creation of a public amenity area. Although the premises
would not qualify as a protected structure, a strong case could be made for its
retention as "as an element in the recognised music-recording heritage of the
area".

They say they are the owners of the 400 sq metre single-storey plus
mezzanine building located at the dockside and that it is a converted former
warehouse. The land is subject to a 35-year lease in favour of U2. Another
objection by businessman Harry Crosbie, who owns adjoining buildings, says
the compulsory acquisition was not necessary and that the order did not specify
the purpose.

The DDDA in placing the CPO said it wanted people to have access to the
waterways and these were currently cut off because of the buildings.

U2 manager Paul McGuinness has said the band had strong feelings about the
building and that they were not going to let anyone knock it down without a big
fight. The DDDA have said the buildings were not particularly pleasant looking.

The oral hearing is to be conducted by Padraig Thornton, a planning inspector
with Bord Pleanala. It will be held on January 29 at 11am in the Gresham Hotel,
O'Connell St.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It sure could be interesting if they show up for the hearing.

Nope, as of the release of ATYCLB (which is when I was there), the Wall was still live and going strong. I even got to sign it!

Hanover Quay Studios will be torn down later this
year. Last year, the Dublin Corporation knocked
down Windmill Lane Wall.

Cool Riddler-thanks so much.

I will definitely sign it-and I hope some other people will too.

I want it to still be there when/if I ever make it back so I can finally see it.

Just signed. I have hope that one day I'll go to Dublin...and that is a place I really want to see.

I already spread the news and the link to the U2 mailing lists I take part in around here.
