Full Description

The site enjoys a high degree of prominence on the west side of Harold's Cross Road on the northern side of the junction of Mount Tallant Avenue. It was formerly home to Capco Roofing and before that to Clarinco Murray sweet manufacturers who were on the site since 1926. Prior to that the site was occupied by a suburban villa known as St Pancras House and, although the house is long since demolished, a part of the original entrance gates remain and were relocated to their current position in 1926. The gates are a protected structure and will form the principal entrance to the new development. The site has been extensively cleared of buildings.
