YOU ARE HERE: Luas 14 photo

July 2003: James's Street

Not too much property had to be acquired to build Luas, although the prices of property in the Dublin area added a considerable amount to the Luas estimates. This plot at the top of Steeven's Lane/James's Street presumably had to be bought; the other notable compulsory purchase was at Usher's Island near the Four Courts. There, residents unstandably fought for their homes but had to settle for demolition, resettlement and compensation. These houses are typical of the Victorian construction that are fast disappearing from Dublin's streets, due to apartment building and reconstruction. The photographer's back is facing Steeven's Lane.
