South William Street wins Great Street Award
The Great Street Award was won by South William Street in Dublin, ahead of Argyle Street and Kirkgate in Leeds. South William Street won, as it has demonstrated an inherited flexibility and a creative use of the past. “The street has consistently had to reinvent itself and each reinvention has added layers of richness and delight to the street’s special place in Dublin. The small grain of development allows start-up businesses to flourish and the supportive nature of the business community has encouraged growth” stated Alistair Barr Academy of Urbanism, lead assessor.
