Appraisal

Eden Quay was originally constructed in the early part of the nineteenth century with some of the buildings having been reconstructed after their destruction during the 1916 Rising. Many of the buildings in this area functioned as offices of steamship agents and brokers, and had stone arcaded shopfronts, although this feature has been dispensed with in this case. The fenestration rhythm and parapet height of the terrace has been maintained in this building and it makes a positive contribution to the historic streetscape.
