Waterfront South Central in the Docklands, if approved, would stand at 155 metres. The current tallest building in the city Capital Dock, which stands at 79 metres tall.

The proposed build would comprise of a range of amenities for visitors as well as residents, namely a viewing deck, a visitor experience, Dublin’s highest restaurant, a pop-up restaurant incubator space, start-up office incubator space, cafes, crèche facilities, restaurants, a farmers’ market, a bakery, and a waterfront townhall space, The Irish Times reports.
