From watching the last few months this is typical. Name a date and time where you think most would be home and I will get the photo. I’d Sunday or Monday evening would be the time when most people would be at home but long weekends may be an exception.
Don’t get me wrong, I live in this area and can see the lights on. For a long time the Thornwood building closest to the junction (with all the trees in front, which BTW could come through your window in a decent storm) used to only have 1-2 lights on on a work day evening. There are a lot more on now.
Merrion Hall has been slowly lighting up, I’ve seen a max of about 4 lights on a work day evening.
The Irish Nationwide / Booterstown Wood building looked for a long time like no work was being done to it. Wrapped up weather safe and left, but in recent times I’ve seen some building activity. Not a lot though, doesn’t look to me like they’ll finish anytime soon.
You need to get a view of the entire apartment block (only really works with apartment blocks) and all the detail you need is what lights are on and off not what people are having for dinner. No one is on display. Not anymore than they want.
That’s what I noticed too. Thornwood was slow to take up but looks to be almost fully occupied now. Merrion Hall looks empty.
The exterior of the Irish nationwide developemnt has been put in place. There were always a few people workin in it, I dont think there’s a rush to complete the job as there aint exactly queues forming to buy these things.
I don’t want to sound like a conspiracy theorist but I was wondering if this was possible. I remember driving past one of the new apartment blocks along the Stillorgan dual carriageway at Christmas and it appeared as if every third balcony had the exact same set of patio furniture. It just looked really odd.
